Begin approximately 10 feet left of Random Crystals in a low-angle, hand crack. Head straight up and bust right at a ledge. A slightly heady move off of the ledge takes you past a short, flared section and into a great hand crack. Belay at a rap station 5 feet right of the finish.

There are two options for descent: scramble off to the south (my personal preference) or use the rap station. It seemed like there was potential for a stuck or damaged rope due to the location of the rap bolts.


This is on the NW side of Blair III, just right of the route are two parallel cracks [2 feet apart] that angle up and left.


Black Diamond #0.75 - #3 and several runners, maybe an extra #2. A stopper fits well at the crux but probably wouldn't keep you off the ledge if you fell.

The move off the ledge and up into the bulging OW can be protected by a cam pushed up overhead, but it is still difficult. It's more than just "heady."

Don't make this route harder by ignoring features on the left and right sides. You can ALMOST avoid offwidth technique.
