A nice climb, just to the left of sticky fingers, ...

When the route is not wet or slimy, as the name suggest, this is a great route for the easy grade. Perfect hand jams, bomber cams settings, and a sustained 5.7 section makes this a triple star in my opinion. Tie in while on the block, back from the route, get your belay slave ready and take the swing... then lower down to the start. Just a quick "jump" start to get your blood pumping.
A medium-sized rack will do just fine.

IMHO - the crux is the first 15 - 20 feet.

I [couldn't really find] a crux on this climb, and just found sustained, bomber jams the whole way...

If there is a crux, I would say it's near the top where the crack rounds out a bit and is sometimes on the dirty side.

Fabulous climb for the grade. If it's wet, it is substantially more difficult.

Classic route and well worth climing. Solid jams and well protected 5.7.

Make sure it has been dry for a few days. If the top of the crack is wet, the climb turns from a fun 5.7 to an [awful] experience.

Good Fun climb. You have to love a 5.7 crack that requires pure jamming. I think the crux is the first 15 feet or the smeary moves at the top.

I vote for the smeary flaring moves in the upper transition area as being the crux, a little freaky to lead on if getting into trad.

This is a route well worth doing. The crux [I think] is definitely near the top where the crack flares to the right. But definitely a 5.7.
