This route lies just left of Jerry Brown and climbs a thin crack which passes along the left side of a small roof (the same one Jerry Brown climbs over) and then continues up a crack system which ends, finishing with a section of face climbing. Tricky moves with the crux coming at the end of the crack/start of the face section. Two stars out of five.

Led this with Louis Babin, January 1985. We named this Brown Trousers. Line sounds exactly as described, and my notes call it 5.10d also. Fun climbing.
