As the name says, this route is a fight. The first pitch climbs a nice hand crack. Pitch two climbs a difficult 5.10 offwidth. Pitch three climbs 5.11 fists through a roof. The belay above is protected by #3 camalot sizes. The next pitch goes up a good finger crack in a corner to a 5.9 chimney.

Only did the 10+ first pitch. A low off-fingers crux, then great thin hands to perfect hands. Good feet/stances. Amazing pitch.

The first belay was a hanging belay on a single bolt with a 11/2 friend after climbing a beautiful perfect hand crack. The next pitch is a wide crack and we only had one #4. The wide crack peters out to a slab move with your feet jammed in the end of the wide crack into a small cave. There are worn groves threw the roof for the rope, it sucks when the rope gets stuck in the crack exiting the cave instead of being placed in the groves. This along with Fine Jade makes for a good day,
