Description 

The bottom is a fantastic, thin sequence that resembles a crack, and climbs like a face. People with thin fingers, and gymnastics backgrounds particularly love this route. It eases up after the initial section, and it's possible to climb up a little ways on easier rock to bypass the hard section (if you just aren't feeling it).
A nice finish in a thin diagonal crack completes the route.


Location 

The start of the climb is a thin crack in the middle of a friendly platform. Right of Macho Pitchu/Brenda's, and left of The Arrowhead climbs.


Protection 

TR or thin gear.

This route actually makes a good lead if you are solid at the grade. The crux is the first 10-15 feet, but it also has great pro if you can stop to plug it in. Bomber stoppers and small cams.

difficulty seems to be directly related to crack affinity; nice climb, though seems a bit dirty from disuse; a pity.
