next line to the right of "Auto Cream" a very thin -left angling- seam, providing no opportunities for jambs or protection at the bottom, virtually a face climb until after the second (and last) bolt. Afterwords it widen to allow fingers and hands and some pro. Towards the top the grade lightens up and the crack becomes a wide "U" shaped valley, unprotected except with larger cams. Anchor off Auto Cream Bolts. a difficult route.

3 out of 5 stars Spicy!

Tricky moves to the bolts. Get in the crack, plug two iffy cams then run 10-20 ft to the top. Spicy.

2 out of 5 stars sparse

the first bolt is a ways off the ground with a crap landing, and the upper part is difficult to protect... i ended up running it out from the end of the crack about 20 feet to the top on two pieces of junk gear... climber be warned. while the climb is not technically more difficult than the 11a beside it, it does feel more so if on lead
