Description 

Start as for Gem, but move right along the quartz dike for 12' and past a 3' THIN crack (RP's here). Continue another 8' of awkward face climbing with no pro to join a splitter hand crack. Descend as for Gem.


Protection 

I toproped this one using a few cams (.5, .75, 3?). If leading, be sure to include RPs to protect a short thin crack section.

Toproped this climb years ago, and remember it to be good fun.

Would double ropes and a piece high in Gem be considered cheating? Just asking..
