Description 

Very fun jamming (hands in double cracks!) and stemming. Beautiful orange corner. In order to get the full value 5.10a rating, traverse from the anchors at the top of the corner to the undercling flake. It's possible to lower off of the anchors of Fascist Architecture down and right. If you end at the anchors in the corner, the route is 5.8.

Location 

First major corner right of the major arete/buttress The Prowess. Looks for a narrow pillar split by two major double cracks.

Protection 

smallish to 3". Bolts under large roof.

A nice test for my new TC Pros (they were splendid in the crack). A nice climb, it's 5.8 to the chains. I thought the hardest move was actually getting to the chains. it's well protected, but, you are smearing on nubbins.

The original line keeps traversing right and finally pulls around the corner of the long roof up to a tree...somewhat dirty business, but the protection is reasonable. First few moves of the traverse are the hardest.
