4 out of 5 stars Finger Crack Testing

Finger cracks are definitely my strong suit. The mini-ledge just under the bolts and the traverse left was the crux for me. Small holds with bad feet made it tricky but having clipped the anchor, there was no mental game on the move. Glad to have onsighted a my hardest trad route and to have it be in yosemite!
