4 out of 5 stars Pencil Neck Geek

Not as sustained as Blue Wind and perhaps not as challenging as either 5.10a pitch. But this sculptured finger crack is a piece of beauty and makes for a fantastic pitch on small gear to a slung rap. As it starts getting cruxy near the top and closes down for gear, stem and traverse right to the open crack and easy ground directly to the slung horn above.
