Description 

Start as for Breezy, but instead of stepping left continue straight up the crack. Finger jams through the overhang, a big pull over the lip, and some clutch hand jams bring you into an easy face and a final fun flake before you reach a ledge and anchors.


Location 

On the South Claw of First Cave. North-facing wall. The continuous crack from the ground through the "wave" overhang.


Protection 

Gear to 1"
2x glue-in bolt anchors

sweet moves on a short tricky line. a finger lock past the overhang helps a great deal, as does faith in feet and gear.
