Description:

This 15-20' crack is to the right of Rayzor's, the is some bolt protected choss down low then enter the pain. Thin finger locks that left my finger tip numb for a day and a half. Most stem their left foot onto the wall to the left. For a full value ascent try to wrestle this one without stemming! For the longset time there was a blue or green ailen stuck half way up.

Descent Options:

Chains up top.

4 out of 5 stars *

I did come across that alien. Couldn't booty it... If your trying to TR, it can be diff to identify looking down into where the trees come really close to the band. Most can see a ledge with an extra bolt if I remember right...

3 out of 5 stars Stinger!

Had to T.R. this one. Only seen it lead once by a, well, avid Yosemite crack climber. Don't stem to keep full value.
