This seam rises above the anchors atop Spiney Norman (2 pitches, 5.11c excellent thin fingers). The first 40' of the pitch are the thinnest, with a string of small RPs (some shallow) being the crux. It stays pretty thin throughout, with a short section of hollow blocks at 2/3 height. At 100', traverse right on a good horizontal into the second pitch of Carol's Crack, and continue up it for 10' to the anchors.
The seam above Spiney Norman on the northwest prow, one crack left of Carols Crack.
2 sets of TCUs through yellow, 1 set offset TCUs, 1 set camalots through #2, lots of RPs with triples through #6 and at least 7 of the #1, set of brass micronuts.
