Description:

On the right side of the southeast face of Blair 3, there's a blob with two cracks on it. Damit is the one on the left. Do some easy but exposed moves up to the base of the crack, then follow the fingers and tips corner (with lots of good face features) that changes aspect at half height all the way to the chains. The crux is the right facing corner, although the left facing corner above that is no giveaway.

Descent Options:

Lower or rappel from the chain anchors.

3 out of 5 stars On TR

I'm still a terrible face climber, and this is more face climbing than crack climbing.
