Description 

Another beautiful crack climb on Quarry Wall. Very clean for Unaweep.

Start just right of a dihedral system in a short, left-facing corner that quickly turns to a nice crack system on a face.

A couple tricky moves get you of the ground and into the nice clean hand and finger crack. Continue up, utilizing a few stems on the left, to a point where the crack arches sharply left. Continue strait up into another finger and hand crack that arches above the original (crux). Continue up this crack, again stemming left occasionally, until the crack merges with the dihedral. From here, you make a few tricky moves past a bulge and gain a nice ledge and belay.

Walk off right or climb one of a few short cracks leading off the exit ramp.

Location 

Rap into the wall from Moon Shadow.
Walk about 100 yards right until you see an obvious, clean crack just right of a dihedral.

Protection 

Double set cams and nuts up to wide hands.

One of the best lines at this wall! Sustained, interesting movement, and a crux right at the end! Classic.
