Description 

Excellent and varied climbing. The crux hits your right off and takes thin stoppers before moving into the wider crack. Straight up the left crack (left of Land of the Midnight Sun) takes you to the common tree. As a variation, head left from the midway ledge and do Drunks in Tow (5.10b).

Location 

Leftmost thin finger crack (crux) then blends into the left crack system that goes straight up to the tree.

Protection 

Gear to 3".

Soft for the grade, even if you do the contrived, grainy, loose, poorly protected, crux. And why would you? It certainly doesn't add anything to the route except for danger.
