Description 

This thin seam just right of Cruel Sister probably gets TR'ed more than any route in the gorge. Although the copious amounts of chalk on this route make it less asthetic it is still an elegent line that makes for a worthy endeavor.

The crux is more cryptic than difficult and finding the right pro can be dubious too.


Protection 

A regular rack of cams and nuts should be complimented with mirco nuts, extras in the smallest cam sizes, and perhaps even a few offset nuts and cams

The route shares anchors with Cruel Sister.

I'll never have the courage to lead, but an awesome TR. Cryptic moves that make the route seem harder for the grade until you figure them out.

The gear doesn't seem too bad, but ya may want to go for the headpoint.
