Description 

This is overhanging hand crack which run inside of the flare.
You do cool and powerful moves all the way to the anchors.
Stelar. I think it going to be a classic route and 10 years from today it would be several parties waiting in the base.
After new Yosemite book will include this route- it going to be fourth white strike at Reed's visible from parking lot : Reed's Direct, Lunatic fringe, Stone Grove and Dr. Fun Time.
Until it become classic - expect some small granite flakes coming out from your feet and hands - while you climb


Location 

Start just 30 left from Porter's Pout. You can see new rap bolts at the top of the crack.


Protection 

Single from 0.5 to #5.
double hands size especially #1, #2 Camelots

Eric says that It has a second pitch too,(I did not climb it and even did not notice it) that goes at 5.10c. At the anchors on top of the first pitch, you do some wild moves left, around the arete (5.10c) to a few knobs on the face, and then up to cracks that lead to the anchors of "Ejesta".

Hey Alexey, nice job on that pitch! Did you onsight? I don't think that pitch will ever be a white streak.... I don't think it will be around long enough. But yes, there is good hard climbing in all that choss.
