|No Money Down (Left)
This is an old historical route put up using traditional gear for protection, that is seldom done now. It roughly follows the line of Thou Shalt Not Covet, but at the top roof, pull on to the face and traverses left (crux)to get to the anchors, which Student Loan now shares. Gear is still needed for the top. It's attraction was mainly pulling a fingery pocket move on the face.
When being cleaned at a later date, it was realized that it was much easier to just keep going straight up, so anchors were put in, making Thou SNC, an easier variation.
This route doesn't have much to recommend now that there are so many other routes, but if you are bored, throw on a swami belt and lead it on gear.
Uses the bolts of TSNC, then a piece or 2 is needed at the top, possibly a TCU or tricam. I don't remember

Thanks for the history. I'll look for the fingery move next time I'm on Student Loan or TSNC. :)
