Description 

This route is located on the very southern end of Jaws, 200 feet West of the Green Thumb. Friction up lichenous rock on the left (south) arete. There is no reliable protection until you have passed all the difficulties. Traverse north along the summit into a squeeze chimney notch and head west into hiking territory.

Protection 

Standard Flatiron rack.

There is a variation beginning 20 feet to the right which goes straight up the middle of the slab. This offers slightly more protection (5.3R, 150 feet). Small cams useful.

This is one of the more lichenous climbs around, and that is a detractor.
