Description:

Climb up short crack and face to a one bolt belay (gear sketchy) at an interesting quartz formation in the wall. Climb runout, lichen covered face to nice crack (bring cleaning tool to excavate for placements). Climb crack to top. If you want to avoid the first belay station, it's possible to climb this as one long pitch if you simul climb the last thirty feet. Classic!

5 out of 5 stars Lickey Split before sunset

We were headed to Toms thumb but got a late start and were running out of sunlight. We headed over to Lickety Split and set up. Only climbed the first pitch. It was my first mixed sport and trad lead in quite sometime. It was definately a run out and has some ballsy moves but it's all there. Didn't have time to finsh 2nd pitch so I left an old carabiner and we repeled from the sketchy single bolt anchor...ha fun times. We'll be back later to finish the climb
