Description:

The striking right hand crack on Ethereal Buttress. Carefully wander up to the base, get a good piece that resists outward pull, and enjoy the rest of this thin beauty.

Descent Options:

Rap from tree with slings. Please don't gang TR this one, it's a popular place.

4 out of 5 stars stout start

tad run out to your first pro... moving from the face to the crack without pro is the mental crux. I only used nuts to protect the crack; tiny ones, but you can lace it up quite quickly with stoppers. Saw someone refer to it as a hand crack.. NO, it's a fingertip crack... often times you slide your fingers along till they find a slight pocket in the crack, just don't let your fingers compete with your gear for which is going in the crack. Your feet just smear the face... Past the finger crack it feels like a walk-up to the tree. One of my favorite routes of all time.

5 out of 5 stars Great!

Great thin crack. Just don't blow it on the thin moves above the start ledge.
