The starting crack. The route trends up and right....

Description 

Wow was I surprised in the quality of this route.

P1. Go up a strenuous crack that quickly ends toward the disconnected roofs. Protect with a yellow Alien at the first roof, followed by a 0 TCU and a bomber nut at the second. Proceed to the dihedral that sports the big crack on the left (which takes a blue Camalot). Stem up dihedral placing good gear as you go, exit at wide crack with medium gear in the back. Set belay at small tree and you can sit down, set belay at big tree and stand.

P2. Go straight up to wall with a right-facing corner and a big crack. Make diffcult move to gain crack and continue to top.
P2's FA was by Mike Endicott and Ross Swanson.


Location 

To the left of Nocturne is a finger crack 10' off the ground. It ends at disconnected, small roofs with disconcerting lichen.


Protection 

SR to #3.5, two #2s.

The top of P1 is the triangular, hanging flake above and left of the climber, who is on Nocturne. The route in the description goes up the right-facing  dihedral formed by the flake.  The crack on the left side of the the flake is reminiscent of the start of Vedauwoo's  Horn's Mother (although much easier...probably 10b).  A #2, #3, and #4 Camalot will protect it.
