Description 

This route starts with a bouldery finger-crack, but once you get off the ground, eases up substantially until the upper crux. Pull the low-roof, then up to a hueco, move right until you gain the finger-crack that runs to the top. The crux is a short section near the top, where the crack tapers out and a few thin moves are rewarded by a solid hand-jam.

Location 

This route is located in between the popular 'Beginner's Only' and 'Where Real Men Dare'. Obvious finger crack that starts at a low roof (the bouldery start).

Protection 

Excellent pro, mostly small-to-mid cams and/or nuts. Shuts at top.

Comparing this thing to the likes of maybe Rapscallions Blues and you will think this is no harder 5.10a.
