Start climbing small edges at overhanging arete (right) next to "the Verdict," a narrowing chimney to its left. Then: Climb finger crack that veers LEFT about halfway up. (One Guidebook erroneously reports crack veering 'right.')

3 out of 5 stars Vulcan: A Hostile Environment

Overhanging climb on small edges to a small finger crack above, with smaller edges for footholds, accompanied by every variety of crawling arachnid and insect launching themselves into eyes, ears, & nose makes this "5.6" with plenty of 5.8 moves upon it, the hardest "6" in the area. Make sure you protect from above before invading Vulcan territory.
