Description:

This is the beautiful but short splitter on a rock left of the Hens and Chickens. Climb the amazing steep handcrack past a few good stances to the fist crack bulge. Struggle through this as the crack widens to an offwidth topout. This would be a 5 star classic if it was longer.

4 out of 5 stars Get fisted

Need to have some solid fist jamming skills to make this look good, also try not to step on your own rope in the crack. Nice crack, if only it were longer... 2 #4's are nice.
