Steeper start to surrealistic pillar. start in the wide crack dihedral, move right into a finger crack for 20 feet, then join the regular route. this route is highly suggested.

4 out of 5 stars direct

takes great gear, sometimes it's a little far back in the crack. felt pretty hard for 10b. I'll say 10c. ran out the last piece and opted for the more direct line going straight for the anchor on dikes.

And the more direct variation that traverses up the hand crack and gains the bolted anchor from underneath -- both were fun.
