Description 

Start up the obvious crack on the north side of the mono bridge, two meters left of the start for "Dream of White Dragons." Easy hand jams and face holds lead to a scramble up to the overhang of jumbled flakes. Pump up this to the roof, and duck left, surmounting the ledge. Plug a #1 or #2 (probably with a long sling) in the higher of parallel horizontal cracks, sack up, and lean out over open air. When you can reach the horn around the corner, swing a foot up for a bomber heel hook or high step. Finish on easy jams to an uneven anchor.

Location 

Approach for Long Lane. Start up the crack closest to the north side of the mono bridge, furthest left on the Pacific-oriented face.

Protection 

Gear to 2". 2 bolt anchor.
