"Hand Over da Loot by Sundown !"
"Can you see me, know my position;
how quick is your eye?
I have no home, no reason to roam;
yet I travel the length of the sky ..."

A dacite-core formation, The Hand was first climbed by desert and wall master Bill Forrest circa 1965, with Gary Garbert and Ky Punches. The men raced up the tower 45 minutes, using only hexagonal machine nuts for pro, via what’s now known as the Razor’s Edge. Their line ascends the rock’s spine for three pitches, offering nearly 200 feet of climbing, often protected by manky fixed gear (added after the FA) and finishing with a splendid vista of plains some 3,000 feet lower to the south and west.

Please note the dacite "hoodoos" to the left of The Hand.

No "hand" is an island, no "hand" stands alone!
