Baluster Crack Variation Finish >>
[Overhanging crack, 1 kb]Magnificent! The compelling crack system in the left side of the valley face of the First Pinnacle is worthy of the walk up on its own. A description would be superfluous, suffice to say a right-hand finish is more in keeping with the fun lower down. © ROCKFAX
