Crux section with good horizontal crack near feet ...

Description 

Follow the main crack up the nose and the face to its left. Easy climbing/good pro until the crack ends and you find the surprise ending. Head into the crux with gear around foot level in a nice horizontal crack. Have your belayer be aware of rocks behind you if you fall.

Protection 

I placed Black Diamond Camalots #1, #2, #0.4, and #0.5 to adequately protect this short route (the smaller cams were horizontals protecting the crux.)

There are many cracks at the top that will take pro.
