Located about 100 yards north of Stay Cats, between two large, loaf shaped boulders (a mini-dome). They meet and form an awesome hand crack in the dihedral, hunt around a bit if you can't find it. The face faces away from Stray Cats. The crack is about 15-20 feet long and starts bout 5 feet off the ground. Great jams and solid feet make this a really fun problem. Highball with a sketch landing. Other potential problems along this face, which runs about 60ft in length. FA: Terry. Also...this is not on or near the Hole Boulder. It is on the backside, near Stray Cats Wall in a boulder field.

4 out of 5 stars vurrry nasss

whew! I kept "testing out" the trickier opening moves, 'til it was easier to just keep going. Nice thin hands, full-value 5.9 eases up toward the top - if you can keep it together!
