Description 

Starting on the Kinethesis ledge, work the right facing corner to the dirty top. Down low the route takes micro gear (RP's, etc) and then has several good placements along the climb. Finish at the Nickle and Dime anchors on continue upwards along an old scary looking 5.8 route (70M required to link two pitches & be careful and KNOT YOUR ENDS!).

Alt. Start: Start below the Kinethesis Ledge and climb the corner to the large hand crack leading to the Kinethesis Ledge.

Protection 

Gear: RPs to 2"
Anchor: Shares Nickle and Dime's Bolt Anchors.
