Baluster Crack*** HVS 5b
[Overhanging crack, 1 kb]

Rockfax Description
14m. 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
