Description:

Neat little route, just to the left of Slot Nose. Seems easier than 5.10a; probably 5.9. Climb a right-facing handcrack. Execute some tricky, balancey maneuvers, always searching for "thank God" pockets. Crux is near the top, right at the second bolt. Arm bar/hand jam with your left arm in a little chimney, while reaching around with your right hand to a good right-facing corner. Use the same anchor as Slot Nose. (sounds as though you were off route.)

Nice little route. Toproped it after leading Slot Nose. Lots of practice down low with body position, and the handholds were perfectly spaced for me (tall guy).
