Obvious crack on downriver side of the formation. The crack starts about 10 feet up. One of the few hand cracks in Iowa... Jam on.

3 out of 5 stars top rope solo w/ grigri

Ten feet up nice hand jam to fists then wider at top. Fun and worth repeating. Wish it was longer/higher. It was a warm day for February (35F).

I am working my way through a Palisades-Kepler climbing guide from the 1970's. A lot of stuff has been lost since then.
