Slot the nut, it's getting dark!

Description 

Through the ever present Chinle, do some small jams and crimps past the calcite. Climb fingers to a pod, then gun for the anchors where it gets really small....

Location 

This is further right of Hands to OW, probably 200 yards. Turn the corner and you will see some calcite on a slab with a splitter and pod etched on to it. Climb it.

Protection 

Finger size cams and maybe a nut at the beginning. The end gets down to green and blue Alien size.

Jason, are you talking about the 2 cracks that are just left of the fallen down pillar with the nice 5.10 handcrack behind/left of it? If so, yeah. Looks like a LONG stretch of Chinle to launch through. Apparrently somebody has done it, though....
