Steep hand crack exit (farthest to right) on the third pitch of New Dementions. An easy way out if you want to avoid the 5.11 pitch on New D. A good pitch in it's own right.

4 out of 5 stars Climbed by default.

Good pitch, steep and bomber hands/fists.
Would have never climbed this pitch had my girlfriend not been with me. After dragging her up the first two pitches of New D, she wasn't about to let me go any other way.
