Butterballs
Rostrum 5th

way better is the overhanging
Red Tower aid crack at Deerhorn
that Dick Cilley mentioned upthread -

Dick, Piggot and I were there, but only
top-roped it, Rick did the "upper V" part,
I didn't even try, just blown away by getting
there, having climbed such a spectacular and
difficult finger crack - traversing into the start of
the crack from the left, others (Bill Ramsey)
went straight up and did the bottom part too.

Cilley, has the Red Tower crack had a lead to
your knowedge?

How 'bout the amazing face to the left?

wicked...

oh, one of the Jardine thin cracks at Arch is
pretty good too - Cosmic Debris* is way up
there also, never got it tho...

*as good as the Red Tower, but the Tower
is in a better position, on an overhanging
prow-buttress.

Hollywood and Vine is another classic DT finger crack.

Other good ones not mentioned include the second pitch of McCarthy North Face, the first pitch of McCarthy West, Casper College, the first couple of pitches of Tulgey Wood, the Hong Variation and although it is a steming problem El Matador is mostly fingers on both sides.

How did I miss this thread?

And how can there be a finger crack thread without anything from Trout Creek?

One Way Sunset at DT though only about 70ft of fingers has to have some of the best locks and unlike a lot of routes there it is not in a dihedral.

Romano's at Spidersweb in the Adirondacks is good.

Yeah, Romano's is superb, but White Knight right next to it is purer fingers. For that matter, so is the initial crack section of Fear and Loathing. You kind of can't go wrong at the Web, I guess...

Found these 2 short, but challenging, lines within the last 2 days...






... also heard that Dick Cilley was heading back towards these parts--coincidence?

What is Bad Ass Baby rated these days? .11b/c as of '83ish, kinda highball. Pads would be nice. Harder than Short Circuit for me. Trickier jams; no simple Plug 'n Go affair.

I'm guessing ratings creep has victimized this tricky gem of a splitzer..
