Description 

This route shares the start of Giardia Crack, but busts right just below the roof into the dihedral immediately right. Arrange pro carefully when moving right and then up through the roof -- the rock is pretty broken and loose here. Up higher the pro improves through a fingers crux. Continue up face holds and easier climbing up and slightly right (avoiding the temptation to step left to Giardia Crack) to a bolted anchor.


Protection 

SR. 70m cord nice for getting down.

The start of the route involves pulling on and placing in between some questionable blocks. The crack above is excellent, but I would not repeat due to the questionable rock quality of the start that detracts from the overall enjoyment. I would recommend being confident at this grade.
