Description:

Short but steep hand and finger crack on the face just to the left of Layback Crack. This awkward and pumpy route probably doesn't deserve the two stars in the guide book, but it's worth doing if Goodros is busy.

4 out of 5 stars Nice crack

Stout 5.9 for someone who isn't that great at crack climbing yet. Solid jams, leaning crack encourages stemming. Consistent high quality rock for the first 40-50 feet then it gets a little rough inside the crack. Mostly very good gear placement. Takes hexs and nuts very well. Also used C4 .75 to 3.

Oh, it definitely deserves stars. It also deserves to be called a 5.10, which it is!
