Description 

Awesome tight fingers to start, boulder move crux with a pin. Finish up an 11a offwidth/chimey/flaring corner, FUN. Aside from the boulder move the route is consistent and really fun.


Location 

This route is directly above Model Worker and can be reached as such. Or do an easier route and rappel down into it via the Newest Industry slab anchors.


Protection 

Gear to 3/4", double small stuff...maybe tripples in small stuff and really light on the .5-.75 inch gear.

Broke the pin in the 11a flare today.

The route still protects really well despite the pin(s) being gone. Small cams are the ticket at the lower crux, but I do remember using a larger cam or two in the upper squeeze/flared section.
