Description:

Squirm up between the boulder uphill from Marshmallow Tower and the the tower itself. Place a 3.5" piece if you like and hand traverse right to the base of the finger crack (1"-1.5" piece protects this well). Tight fingers in the bottom of the crack and a big smearing highstep will get you up, then it's easy to go over the top.

Took me several tries over time to lead this clean. Pumpy to protect so don't hang out too long and a good hard pull for the crux.
