4 out of 5 stars Hard Crack

The start of The Fang, or Fang, can be a little challenging if you do not have much crack climbing experience. once past the crux, which is before the chimney, the climb is fairly easy.

3 out of 5 stars Good fun

The crux is clearly at the bottom, then you get to climb up a fun chimney.

2 out of 5 stars Not a squeeze

Totally disapointed. A sweet (though short) locker finger crack leads to what looks like a squeeze chimney. It's not, you can easily climb the face (5.6ish) on the outside of the chimney. Traversed across the face to reach some anchor bolts out right. That was ok, traversed low to make it harder for more interesting climbing.

4 out of 5 stars A little tricky

Getting to the wide crack is the crux, once your there protecting is easy and the climbing is fun.

4 out of 5 stars worthy

I used it as my mental warm-up for the Fracture. don't be afraid of the wide section, it's not bad.
