Hike left along the base of Cynical Pinnacle. The first obvious handcrack you see is Handjob Direct. Climb the beautiful but toothy crack for one pitch to a big ledge. Continue up another route or descend a gully left of the route(involves some scrambling). Great pitch with an awkward and strenuous section of jamming down low.

4 out of 5 stars First pitch only

We only did the first pitch because we had no offwidth gear. It's good and technical. Crack technique is essential.
