Description 

This route is located on the left side of the established routes. It is a dihedral just left of Knocking on Heaven's Door. Starts with a bad sized hand/finger crack that quickly changes into a super thin crack.(crux) after passing the crux the crack undulates from fingers to tight hands off and on climbing with a fun sequence towards the top.

Protection 

Camalots from 3.5 down to .2, doubling on most is helpful, stoppers work well and a least one quickdraw for the bolt.

Not a uniform splitter, but continuously changing in size and shape.

After pulling the thin bolted crux, stays consistently 5.10 to the top. Superb
