Dan Seeliger moving into the hand crack and around...
Starting at base of PCT Crack head up to ledge on right following jugs. Follow the obvious line up and over a mantle and through the roofs above. After some sequential climbing to get into the perfect but awkward hand crack at the apex of the roof, climb into a narrow chimney. After another awkward bulge climb a chimney and the crack / featured face to the left to chains. The crux begins when moving into and around the roofs and ends once around the bulge and into the wider of the two chimnies.
The entire route is overhanging
New bolts w/ chains get you down easily
Cams from .3' to 4". You could take a 6+" piece for the upper chimney, but smaller cams can be placed in a shallow crack on the left. Doubles or even triples of #2 and #3 camalots are helpful.

The overhanging nature of the route become obvious...

Great route! Needs more traffic to keep the lichen down. Great rests along the way keep this steep route 5.10.
