Description 

Climb thin cracks and flakes up the slab between the Guillotine and Graham Crackers to a short fist crack ending 80' up. Here the difficulties begin with a tough-to-protect seam (bring micro-nuts), then a horizontal with a shallow blue Alien sized pin scar, and 20' of slab (crux) to the rap anchor. The upper slab is a bit contrived, avoiding a short traverse left to easier, more featured rock. Climb up the center of the slab for full effect.

Location 

Rappel the route with a 70m or two ropes, or climb easier terrain to the top and walk off.

Protection 

Nuts and small cams for the bottom, then a #3 or #4 Camalot for the fist crack, and micronuts and a blue Alien (or equivalent) to protect the runout to the top.

Climbing straight up the center of the blank slab from the pin scar seemed like the coolest line, but also the hardest and felt more like 10b/c. Moving slightly right looked like it may have been a tad easier with better looking dishes to smear in. Moving left looked easy and off-route. Clark Jacobs indicated that there used to be a fixed pin in the horizontal to protect the runout at the top. The pin is gone and the scar was full of dirt. Once cleaned out, it took a relatively good blue Alien which probably would have held a fall from the crux. If not, it would have been a LONG ride down to the last good piece!

Maybe a green C3 will work in the upper horizontal.
