Taking a lap.

Description 

This is a great long route that puts a bit of hurt on you through a small roof and up wide hands/fists. Be careful on the lower section. Your belayer may want to plug something into the Chinle as you are perched on a bit of a knoll.

Location 

This is climber's right of The Curve and across the drainage approximately 250 feet. Start at the top of the opposite drainage and traverse some Chinle to begin the crack.

Protection 

Yellow Metolius, some other fingers at the bottom. Doubles from #0.75 to #3. Maybe triples of #3. 1 or 2 #4.
