Description 

There is nothing wrong with this route at all - it's just a little short. But it is a nice easy fist-crack, probably 5.3. Start a few meters left of the 10' pine that is growing up against the base in the Central Inset. This climb ascends the obvious fist crack that faces right and forms a shallow, right-facing corner for a few body lengths before changing to a thin flake at the top.

You can descend by climbing up on the slab for a ways and down into a chimney system, or by going South out on the slab, East down it a short way, then back North to a gully at the edge.


Protection 

Hand and fist-sized cams.


Location 

This is the leftmost of the 3 "central" climbs on the North Face of the 3rd Advisor. See the attached photo.
