In the gully section left of Moscow, but right of Super Slab, is this crack system as documented in the Watts book. Exhilerating 5.9 climbing in a pod becomes a full-on body chimney, ending up on a hollow thin flake. Traverse left over scary loose rock to the big flake, clip an off-route anchor if nailbiting, then pro big and rocket up 15 feet of outstanding large liebacking. Head rightward after the flake and meet up with a large horn that can always use another rap sling and rings, if you have them. This horn is also the top of a 5.7 crack that comes up from the right side.

Whoa was this scary. Rope drag caused me to pop a nubbin and whip, and the loose rock is crappy. The flake itself is exceptional!
