From the belay ledge at the beginning of the last pitch, there is a beautiful handcrack that splits the middle of the face and leads up into a roof. You can climb the crack (5.9) and traverse left into the standard dihedral finish, or you can continue through the roof (5.10c), setting a belay on top and traversing left for a short final pitch (runout, but fairly easy). Both are protected very well with a standard rack and make excellent options for those who are seeking a bit more challenge.

5 out of 5 stars Only the hand crack

Started to thin for my hands so I struggled, but grunted my way through it. Opted out of the 5.10c roof, but it looks really fun

Kent with Exum took my husband and I up this awesome route, and did a variation for the finish which allowed us to choose between a beautiful 5.9 hand crack and a 5.7 crack. We had a blast!
