Description 

This route is located just left of "Crack" near the southeast corner of the Cube. Follow the burly flake using jams and liebacks to the top. Like it's brother to the right, this crack is harder than it looks.


Protection 

Usually top-roped from 2 bolts at the top. To lead it, bring a range of nuts and camming devices up to a #4 Camalot.

Funny how the perspective changes depending on how you do it.As a route, I'd give it 10b, 1-star. It just can't compare with a 200' pitch. As a boulder problem, V0 or V1 (?) and 3-stars. Best darn boulder problem around. Bad landing though- watch your ankles in the bushes and rocks, you'd break one and a spotter can't get good footing.
