Moving to easier ground.

Description 

Difficult from the start and consistently requires that the climber use subtle layback and crabbing to make the thin holds work. If only it were a little longer!

Follow the thin seam up a vertical face.

Location 

a few feet right of Turtle Piss on the North side of the Y-Crack Boulder.

Protection 

Two bolts.

Please see my Turtle Piss comments. The same applies; however, this route has fewer hand and foot holds. Often all you can find for hand or foot is a ripple in the rock and you sort of balance up the climb as something yellow trickles down your leg. It is the hardest 5.8 I have ever climbed.

The start is definitely the crux. There are plenty of good holds as long as your'e conscious of sequence. Much easier than the starts to both Birthday Party and Mickey Mantle.

Start to the left of the bolt line only moving right at the finish.
