Great for top rope solo

Description 

Locate bolts between Thantos and Wine and Roses and drop straight in.

Climb the polished thin hands/hands crack in the dihedral to its end and gain a ledge. From here it is easy to attempt the direct finish (5.11?) but the standard route moves around the bulge to the right and climbs back to the rim on one of many 5.6ish cracks.

Protection 

Standard rack or drop a TR and call it good.

Crisp, immaculate crack in perfect rock. Single set of cams from tips to cups protects it well. Throw in an extra hand size or two if you don't feel comfortable on perfect hand jams. Would be 4 stars if it were longer. Gear not needed after pulling out of the corner... the rest is 5.easy.
