Long and sustained. Lots of variety, crimps, underclings, sidepulls, pinches, jugs, slopey stuff, little pockets, huge pockets, and one shaped like a big bull penis. This climb has it all.
There is a distinct crux near the top. I think it was between the last two bolts. Thin moves there.
A 60 meter barely reaches with rope stretch. I think My rope might be short for 60M though...
2nd route from the right in a little cove about 100ft up from where the trail deposits you by Beeware. Starts on a nice ledge.
12 bolts, chain anchors

Thanks for including me Joseph but I was not involved in the FA of this one. I did climb it and it was "thin where it was hard" thus the name. This is a must do route.

That's funny. I thought the route was named after the very long and narrow hole that is about a third of the way up the route.

Actually there is a soda straw formation way in the back of one of the holes at the top. That's where the name actually came from.
