This lies on the left of What's My Line on the left side of this little crag, a satellite crag on the left side of the Lower Great Face. It ascends the obvious crack with an alpine feel in a subalpine environment. Start on the left-facing flake. Move up into a pod. Go left and jam/stem up the steep-for-5.7 crack with great holds. Power through a brief bulge. Fire for the top. No fixed pro. Enjoy.
You could continue up to the left edge of the Lower Great Face or rappel.
There is a 2 bolt anchor down and right for What's My Line. There is a 70' rap off a large flake with slings as well.
Single set of cams to 3 1/2", wires.

A super fun little warm up. The farther up you go, the better the quality of the rock.
The fixed anchors as mentioned are about 20' right. It's a low 5th class traverse.

For folks that climb in BC, I found this climb to be more difficult thans Grins at the crux. I had to use the left face to step past the bulge, so this might just be my lack of face climbing skill. There is 25 feet of 5.5 runout after the crack ends.
