Overview
Start your day on this climb, which offers great straight-in hand jamming. The first 10 feet are committing, technical, and requires a spot if leading. The undercling roof start variation may feel easier depending on your granite face climbing experience. Either start is unprotected for 10 feet and usually avoided by scrambling to the bolt anchors and setting a toprope. Above the tricky start, a splitter 5.7 hand crack offers sustained and enjoyable jamming (you will want to do at least a few laps on this upper section).
