Description 

This striking right-facing corner/fingers splitter capped by roof is the landmark feature. It is obvious from the approach to Comic Relief, Cloak & Dagger. Above the splitter is a steep slab with an incipient crack with RPs for pro.

P1: climb P1 of Cloak & Dagger to nice ledge below a pegmatite roof left of Cloak & Dagger corner, 5.9+, 180'.

P2: climb left-leaning chimney/slab to nice ledge below obvious finger crack/ corner capped by rectangular roof, 5.11a, 70'.

P3: ascend a fingers/tips splitter/layback corner passing fixed nuts under roof, pass roof to the right with hands/thin hands. There is a fixed nut belay, 5.11+, 80'.

P4: climb a steep, slabby seam to stance at top of P4 of Comic Relief, 5.12b, 90'.

Location 

The obvious fingers splitter/corner is the landmark for this stellar route.

Protection 

Mostly small stuff, some hands/big hands for chimney, fist crack, and bring RPs for sure.

Pitch 3 is really fun! I didn't have the balls for pitch 4. I escaped by climbing over to the black corner on Comic Relief.
