Somewhen, this route's name was changed to Latch Key Kids. Scramble up onto a low ledge, lieback a tiny diehedral and follow a flaring crack to the finishing slab. Work through the slab on slopers (crux).

5 out of 5 stars If this what I think it is

It's a biatch of a climb. 80 feet or so. 9 bolts plus shuts. Email me if this isn't the climb two routes left of the big crescent trad route so I can delete. It's almost a triple crux for some people. Good rests. Top section will get you if you hurry. Rest at gaston (clip) and find two finger (LH) pocket to nice slopey ledge. Watch out for wind at the top that blows chalk into your contacts and screws your ascent as you rest on the energy sapping gastonish sidepull. So f'n close. I can't sleep.
