Description 

A surprisingly difficult route for its grade, this route - just like a true hustler - lends a false sense of security, then leaves you in the lurch.

Location 

Start in dihedral/chimney approx. 15 feet right of Cool Hand Luke; work your way onto the right face, and follow crack to top. 5.1 scramble up to easier walk-off terrain from top.

Protection 

Barely adequate enough to achieve PG status. It's possible to build an anchor using only static line, but it requires some ingenuity - and a lot of static line. Gear anchor otherwise.
