Description:

A Fourth pitch of Great Expectations. 50 ft up and right from the third belay is a 15 ft vertical hand crack. Once on top of the crack, traverse out onto the face using a horizontal crack. Go into the left facing dihedral and up on 4th class slabs to a stack of boulders and belay from there. Most of the route is 3rd/4th class, but the 5.7 handcrack makes the route worth it. Best if you keep going to the summit trail for the descent.
