Do You Really Want It?

I'm not going to fiddle around trying to post pictures cause I know they'll all come out upside down or something crazy...and then I'll get the quintessential "Did that fall over comment?" So see this, it'll be worth it, trust me!

Clicking the link was worth it. The TR had enough climbing and a psychedelic lizard! Really, did your friend have hands so small that she used fists for Incredible hand crack? Sh#t she must have chimneyed Super Crack/Luxury-Liner-of-the-Desert.

I've never been out there... what's a typical approach time to get from car to base of the climb? Can you camp where you park the car, or do you need to camp somewhere else and then leave the car at a trailhead?

Thanks guys...tips route was Electric at the power wall...very burly for a 40 ft route it starts with an overhanging fist move. Darwin she's half Philippino, very tiny hands, most of the route she can jam just fine but at that roof it widens just enough.

Nut is this a troll? Approaches are generally 10-30 mins if your quick...only camp in designated spots...some are at the base of the buttresses though.

No troll, just lazy beta gathering for my first trip there after summer :) The place looks awesome and made for my climbing strengths (which is relative of course).

Darwin,
Also, that overhanging section of Incredible Hand Crack has gotten a lot wider than it was originally.
Wear and tear from all the foot jamming over the years.

It has always been wide hands or layback . . . could only have eroded no more than 1/4" in the last 20 years.
