Fun overhanging hand crack. The hand jams are decent but sharp.

4 out of 5 stars Bring your big guns for this short but fierce overhanging crack.

Don't even bother if the beginning is a little wet; it only gets worse. A really cool route with excellent (big) gear that will be fun to get back on!

Edit: Third time was the redpoint charm, the first outing the crack was sopping wet, second go round was in November in 40 degree hand freezing temps, and the third attempt was perfect conditions. Fun and burly route that favors taller folks that can reach from one jam to another without the arm draining intermediate moves I needed to do. The cruxes, which are both very well protected, are getting through the first overlap and then gaining the roof crack. Good gear and a badass hand/fist crack definitely puts this one high on the list.
