Description 

Steep, well-protected, gear climbing is not something you run into every day. Starting on D-Slab, climb the corner to the base of a left leaning crack that splits an overhanging wall. The gear at the base of the overhang is a little tricky, but as soon as you get into the meat of the climb, the gear gets bomb-proof. Climb the crack up and left finishing on Dee's Rival Slab.

Location 

Approach as you would for D-slab. You can also go to the base of Hard Up and traverse left to the base of the route.

Protection 

Standard Rack of cams will be fine.

A purple Ailen or tricam is useful for a shallow placement at the bottom of the overhang.
