Description 

Stem chimney to point where cap block juts left (due north). Place gear and jam across gap to left-facing hand crack. Climb crack with some awkward moves to top of formation. The exit is vaguely reminiscent of Nitrogen Narcosis.


Location 

On east face of Plumb Line Crag's upper tier, locate a niche immediately right of leaning, detached tongue of rock. The rock tongue is on the left side of the east face. The niche contains two crack systems-the right is a finger/hand crack in the corner. To the left of the corner is a stemming chimney capped by a bridge of rock, spanning the chimney's top. The chimney and capstone comprise the route.


Protection 

Bring a few hand-sized cams down to a few stoppers. A few long slings will reduce rope drag, key for getting through the leftward traverse into the crux. A two bolt anchor with lower-offs resides immediately left of the route's final moves.
