A great climb if you enjoy getting your knee stuck in cracks. Begin 40 feet downhill to the left of 'Marine Life' at the base of a 300 foot long, offwidth crack. Follow the crack either using gentle face holds or by repeating the same offwidth move 300 times to reach an interesting squeeze chimney at the top. Pop up through this to reach the ridge. It is impossible to go off-route. There are a few good belay opportunities that don't require 6 inch gear. Descend by downclimbing the easier (5.1) chimney next to 'Green Chimney' or by scrambling off to the North.
This is an excellent route to climb after 'Inquisition' on The Fin, as it starts exactly where Inquisition finishes.
Standard rack. 6 inch gear is useful but not necessary. Long pants.
