This line climbs Climb and Punishment for its first 50 feet before taking the finger crack that exits on the left. The crack involves a relatively short battle to stay balanced whilst jamming. Seemed best to belay just past the lip before continuing up and left to reach the jumbled rocks above Finger Grinder, where easy scrambling down through blocks leads to the Glenda's Chimney Rappel.
The line has quality moves, especially with the approach via Climb and Punishment. Plenty of no hands rest options exist just prior to cutting into the finger crack, including the version I found that resembled sitting in a Barker Lounger. Perhaps it was my creativity in resting before heading into the line, but I still think the line is soft for the Vedauwoo 11c grade. [Perhaps] comparable to Max Factor, but less sustained.
