Description:

Immediately to the left of 'Handjacker' beneath the parabolic slab. Enter the route through the slot on the right. The first pitch is an off-width/sqeeze chimney that may deserve a 5.7 rating. There is a thin crack that runs a long the left wall that can be protected using nuts, small hexes, Aliens - whatever. There are also some spots for bigger pieces, especially as you approach the top. The lack of space definitely makes this first pitch tricky (hint - you will not be able to go straight up due to constrictions; be prepared to step out to get in). Belay at the top of the chimney on the right side. Second pitch begins by stepping over the chimney and continues around the corner on a nice hand/fist crack. The route then takes a right at the top of the crack and continues with some 5.5/5.6 off-width climbing. Belay at the top of the second pitch. Rap slings are located to the right (but bring some webbing just in case).

Fun route, pretty varied climbing - probably a little harder than a 5.6

Climbed this with my wife and she would agree with the description. Paul Piana has this at 5.6 with "some" 5.7 moves on the first pitch. Definitely an off-width with some weird moves for getting into and out of it. Getting to the top also requires some thought. Second pitch eased up and was definitely something more like 5.6 with a hand crack to an offwidth.
Loved this.
