Paydirt follows the finger crack at left

Description 

An awkward starting sequence leads to a beautiful low angled right facing corner that gradually fades into a frictiony finish.
A TR can be set by scrambling up from the right.

Location 

The rightmost and uppermost route in the Surf City area.

Protection 

Gear to 1.5" (mostly smaller), bolted rap station

As of 8/19/13 there were bolts up top, but no rap rings...the walk off right was simple though. Fun finger crack corner, if a bit short!
