This is the thin finger crack to the left of Crimson Cringe. Start by climbing up the ramp. Place some gear with a long runner then turn the corner and bust up the thin crack to the anchors. There’s a rest along the way. There’s a photo of this route on the back cover of the Super Topo Yosemite Valley free climbs guide.


To the Left of Crimson Cringe


Thin to about .4
To protect the moves getting into the crack take a #2 or #3 forget which. You'll know from the base.
