Hard Lieback lies between Satisfaction and Fat Crack on the right side of the wall. The thin crack is not usually laid back as the name implies. It may be easier for small fingers.

Better than fat crack in my opinion. Perfect blue tcu's most of the way to a nice hand crack at the top. My favorite at the columns.

This route vascillates between perfect fingerlocks and super-tight-hands, with one or two ring-locks thrown in for good measure. It has two cruxes that come right after an awesome jug, and right before perfect hands, respectively.
