Description 

This route is a nice moderate splitter on good varnish. Scamper up the unprotected grainy slab (5.5) to the perfect splitter. Hand jam over the roof, off hands and tight fists above.


Protection 

several mid to large cams

Nice exercise in straight-in #3 camalot size jamming. Too bad its way the hell out in no-mans land, or it'd have a line on the weekends. The exfoliating, crumbly slab start is a detractor from this otherwise sweet line. Worthy of more than the zero stars given in the Vogel guide.
