Description 

The traversing lower half of the crack can be climbed either high (by shuffling your feet along the crack using your hands for balance) or low (with your hands in the crack while smearing). The upper half of the climb is easier.

Location 

From the ledge this climb heads up the sickle shaped crack between P1 of the Grat Northern Slab and the Aries diehedral.

Protection 

Gear to 3". Smaller gear for the crack, larger for the anchor.

Interesting feature. Link to Blockbuster and Pisces for a pretty rad long pitch.
