Description:

(from the Falcon Guide) *** The top of this fine climb is often haunted by tourists, so try to smile as the crack gets harder and harder. Just right of "Hidden..." is a lower angle area leading to another corner. Scamper up the slabs (5.6, limited pro) and climb the hand crack above.

5 out of 5 stars Winner of Barkers Best North Shore Crack

This was the first of many crack climbs that I fell in love with. It is a uniform splitter and a perfect hand size crack. I never felt comfortable in a crack before. I always thought my hands would slip out. This crack changed everything and now I am a crack addict.

5 out of 5 stars Beauteous Hand Crack

Great crack to get your jamming down...pretty short though. First part of route is ledgy 5.6 and the actual hand 5.9 crack is about the last 15 ft. Enjoy it!
