5 out of 5 stars nice crack

a good crack to get the jamming skills where they need to be but the top can get a little dicey

4 out of 5 stars Ouch!!

I wanted the onsight so I put my fingers anywhere they could fit and pulled very hard. It was still a very easy climb. Just spot out your first couple of hand jams so you can pull through the short slightly overhanging beggining. There is plenty of good feet in the crack too.
