The centerline of thin cracks, overlap and airy face. A good climb with somewhat somewhat intimidating protection. Crux is at the top.

4 out of 5 stars interesting moves

This route is far easier than other 9's at this area. The 5.8 to its left is a grade harder in my opinion. However, this is a high quality climb. Might be more difficult for someone very short?

Rob gave a patient belay as was trying to figure out the 9+ crux at the end of the route. Eventually made it clean with a hairy right handed crimp.
