A beautiful thin crack up a less than vertical face. Solid feet are hard to come by in places. Eases up near the top. The start could vary in difficulty if you try doing it static vs dynamic.
Head downhill down a trail 50' before the trail that leads to the Seminar Wall. A ways down on a very large boulder.
Rappel anchor. Solo up a 5.7 low angle slab around the climbers' right side of the climb to set it up. Good warm up for the business.

Great route, super clean, thin tips

Definitely a classic and one of my favorites at Woodson. The moves off the ground are the crux. Being short, or simply doing the start statically makes it more difficult. Contrarily, having small fingers likely makes this one easier.

After being stumped by the “hop or dynamic beta,” I tried some very static beta and this thing went smoothly. One of the finest climbs I have done at Woodson!

The static start checks in at 11+.
