CCCRRRRUUUXXXX; but the rest is really cool so it'...

Description 

Pretty fun route with a thin and difficult crux right at the start. The start might be difficult to protect on lead so be careful. After the initial thin section; great and varied FUN finger crack to practice finger jams the rest of the way to the juggy roof move at top!

Location 

This route is the obvious vertical crack with a small roof about 10 feet up. Take the walk off the same as Hans Soloing!

Protection 

If leading; take THIN gear up to 2 inches plus larger cams for an anchor on top. Recommend climbing Hans Soloing and setting up a top rope if not confident at the grade?? Also watch for some thin and fragile holds at the start.

bring micro stoppers for the start- without them, its a solo.

The start protects well, there's a #2 down low and you can stick in a small stopper equalized with a purple C3 before you commit to the hard moves. It's a cruiser after that.

I thought the start protected fine with a small stopper. You have a good stance to place a stopper above the roof before you pull it.
