Description:

A short but fun exercise in fist jamming. Easier for big hands via big cupped hands, or with heavy taping.

Descent Options:

Downclimb to climber's right, down low-angled slab to a crack that circles clockwise and down passing a tree before reaching the ground. Have a good look at this beforehand. Also possible to scramble over top to rap anchors atop east face.

1 out of 5 stars Damper

Not very tall, sustained nor overly interesting...a good solo jaunt. Pinched Rib to the right is a much better short pitch. Climb down to the right. With Stacy.

3 out of 5 stars Ouch!

I was the second for this climb and it really tore my hands up. I should probably use tape next time...

Did it with BD #8 hex and #2 C4, no big gear. Some nice jams but still a bit of workout ow.
