Description:

Another classic "sleeper" obscuity at the leap. This is an overhanging hand and finger crack on clean, smooth dike free rock un characteristic of the leap. Start by heading up the first pitch of Eeyors Enigma and moving into the overhanging crack to the right about 30ft up. This route features bomber (deep) jams followed by thin technical finger sections to another bomber set of hand jams. Clip a pin up high and move into a thin fingers lieback to the fixed anchors. Extreemly steep, clean, exposed and fun.

Descent Options:

Lower to the ground or continue up Under the Big Top.

5 out of 5 stars Bad ass.

A hard start getting into the crack to some bomber jams. The whole route is bomber jams followed by a few moves of thin flareing fingers to another set of bomber jams. The route goes like this until you clip a pin up high. Just when your hands start to give out from hard jamming the crack turns into a balancy finger crack lieback all the way to the chains. Which is a welcomed relief. Bomber pro, overhanging, sustained, clean all out hands and finger battle. A classic must do. Rated 5.11c/d.
