Description:

Vertical crack up and left of Green Slab direct and Darkness 'till Dawn. Two pitches to a rappell off a tree. Finger to hand jams, liebacks, full body wedges. Cut left to a lieback flake when the crack splits towards the top of pitch two for the 5.9 finish. Technically pleasant but watch out for bird crap and the dead pigeon. For the 11a finish, head right to the right-facing dihedral. Save a 3 Camelot for the upper part of the dihedral, so that you'll have a bomber piece before committing to the crux above. - UBG

Sweet route, but the beginning spanked me something fierce. I had a really hard time getting into the big crack as I was offwidthing with one arm, laybacking with the other, and had my feet on some slick little dime edges. Top part of the route was great though, did the 5.9 variation. Double-rop rappel.
