Description:

Obvious finger and hand crack with a little lieback section in the middle when the crack gets a little wide. Its actually much cleaner and nicer than it looks from the bottom. Well worth the walk! F.A. Jon Frank, et al. (1978)

3 out of 5 stars man!

This one was a bit more than I expected, at the end of a hot day - looking for a splitter with a breath of cool air coming out of it, I found a bit of a rough one with some serious offwidth in the middle. I got tunnel-vision up in the wide section, and down-climbed to hang while I scouted gear/other moves - and just to gather strength. This was after wearing myself out on "bombs away" at 40 ft. hole, and by this time the "Ice Box" was in the sun!

Look forward to cracking it with fresh limbs, earlier in the day! Will be a nice morning climb, some time.

Takes big gear!
