Rawhide

Steven working Rawhide at The Grotto in Jamestown, Ca. This perfect 5.10d finger crack is situated between two of the many 50ft basalt columns nestled beneath Table Mountain. These columns are capped by blocky, overhanging terrain keeping us dry during a handful of unexpected spring showers. This image was taken with a servo controlled camera atop a 30ft carbon fiber pole.

Sweet! What's the angle? If it's really vertical, I'd expect it to be harder than 11a.

Would have been a 5 but it's TR. Sick line, though!

slightly less then vertical. Its probably the best line at the Grotto, and I always remember it being 5.10d and not 5.11a (when did that happen?).

10d - 11a (does it really matter)?
