Description 

This route has 2 distinct cruxes, with easier climbing at the start and finish. After you figure out the 1 move trickery about midway, there is a good rest on a ledge before tackling the steep crack above. Most of the jams are very positive with only one short sketchy section.

Location 

This is located on the Minion Wall, just left of the Main Wall. Look for a slab start, leading to a 15' tall offset seam, then into a hands/fists crack.

Protection 

8 bolts & gear to 2.5". There are anchors before you enter the upper crack, or continue to another anchor at the top of the crack for full value.

The seam is okay (kind of weird), but the crack above is pure joy. If that crack were longer, it would be 4 stars.
