One of the test pieces at the crag. It starts by climbing an overhanging corner feature – then one must negotiate a number of difficult technical moves before reaching the actual crux, which is a number of very (very) crimpy moves as your get higher and higher above your bolt. The normal finish is to climb the roof of “Band-Aid Box” using those anchors to rap or lower off.

Descent Options:

rap or lower off of anchors - shares anchors with Band-aid Box

4 out of 5 stars Hard on the fingers

The crimps at the crux of this climb are hard on finger skin. Really you only get one or two good attempts per day before you need to wait for the skin to grow back.
