Description 

Fun slab/face climbing past a bolt and then into a thin crack with some cool finger jams.

Climb the middle crack, directly to the chimney of Hands Masseuse.

Follow that to the top.

There was never a bolt here before the crack. It was fun fiddly gear when I climbed it between 2002 and 2005.
