Description:

Good crack route right of Stiff Little Fingers. Two distinct cruxes: the first at a off-hands move about halfway up and the second when the crack peters out and you make a couple of face moves to gain a ledge.

4 out of 5 stars excellent route

Don't let the slab move scare you. You can load up the crack right before it to keep yourself safe. Of course, if you blow it, you'll cheese-grate off a nice bit of skin. So don't blow it.

4 out of 5 stars Hard 5.9

I climbed this once but greased off the crux face hold near the top because it's all day sun in July and I had no chalk. Didn't exactly cruise it this time. It's pretty damn hard trusting that face hold once the crack peters out.
