This is the right hand of the two obvious finger cracks from the ledge... Climb thin and sharp fingers up a shallow corner.... The locks are great and the view is even better.... The climbing eases up the higher you go.... There is only about 20 feet of technical climbing but its is worth while if you just love cracks....
Don't forget to look like you just climbed 400 feet of 5.12 the tourists at the top will be impressed....

Nuts and a few TCUs.

I found this crack to be very strenuous and getting the gear in above the small roof was tricky. Though very short, the moves off the deck are stout and bouldery. The good thing is that the crux is early, the bad thing is that the crux is early!!! You definitely want to get good gear in before pulling up and over the crux section or you can deck on that ledge. Great locks, great gear and a pumpy route for its length. Better than Lookout, but harder IMHO. Good finish to any of those climbs that end on the lookout ledge!

I agree chris, short but stout. If it was longer it would definitly get the grade.
