Description 

Agony is the appealing crack line sandwiched between Triple S and Crack of Dawn. Commonly done in two pitches but best as a single rope-stretcher. Climb the face up to the crack, follow this through the overhand and into the chimney. Belay here or follow the easier chimney to the top.


Protection 

Standard rack.

Once you've done the original line try 'Agony till Dawn" this variation allows you to slide left just after the chockstone and right before the chimney climbing--you're just past the crux of Crack of dawn--follow the beautiful hand and finger cracks to shuts.
