Description:

Widely considered the best crack in the Port Hills. Follow the obvious hand crack up and left of the roof directly above Expedition Crack/Buttress Corner. This line, that steadily increases in steepness, is quite sustained but offers excellent jamming and pro.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This is an overhanging and grunty line. I didn't have enough suitable gear to protect it as I would have liked so I got away with four pieces and some runouts. Arse puckering stuff. The pucker-factor would be reduced by having sufficent gear. Very happy the jams were solid.
