This route climbs a series of broken and horizontal cracks on the wall to the right of the PCT Crack area. In the new guidebook its described as a zigzaging crack, but its really linking horizontals from faceholds. As we climbed it we went straight up through a couple of cruxy areas and then left to the finger crack leading over the top. Its consistently steep and every move felt about 5.9. I thought it was hard for the grade and could be 10-.
The route starts on positive face holds and heads into a left facing / left leaning dihedral. There are bolts on the slab about 6' back from the lip of the climb with new chains.
Good selection of nuts and cams from 00 to #3. Doubles in the finger to hand range are helpful.
