4 out of 5 stars High Plains Drifter

This pure crack pitch is worthy of more than one star in Miramontes guide. An excellent hands and finger pitch utilizing a series of short slanting cracks. The short bit of slab to the fixed station at top is low angled. With Stacy.

5 out of 5 stars Great weekend

No one else around--a cold day in the park except for back here in the sun. Special.
