Description:

A classic splitter finger/hand crack, as good as any in the Gorge. Killer either as a lead or TR training climb. To se tthe toprope, climb the first three bolts of Cafe Chc (5.10a), then traverse 10' R to the anchors below the roof. [Description from Horst guidebook]

4 out of 5 stars nice

Great crack line. Thin hands with a few good jams and locks. Pretty easy for the grade, and too short, but still good.
