First climbed by Frank Sanders, solo, Spring 2000.This route is one crack left of Blade City accessed via the Durrance Approach to the Southwest Shoulder. Aid this incredible thin crack for a pitch & 2/3 to its end, traverse right, take Blade City to the top. A3+. 5.7. Splendid 3-Star route of thin, thin nailing

This is a Beautiful, slender aid crack. It goes 2, long, thin pitches that require ingenuity and cleverness (until it widens and leads to mixed climbing). It is steep and provides anyone that climbs it an excellent Big Wall Feeling...or Preview.
