Description 

Hop up some ledges til you reach a really sharp layback crack. If only this was much longer, it would be a classic. Make a couple layback moves, be careful of the loose part of the flake, mantle onto a ledge and cruise the blocky crack to the top of the Basalt and Battery pinnacle.

Location 

This is the left-facing corner to the left of Basalt and Battery. You can step down to that anchor to get off.

Protection 

A couple mid-size cams (#1-#2).

There's a spot where a #4.5 Camalot (old style) would have been useful.
