Eat the Rich is quite fun, but so short. It's a little bit sustained but presents hand jams in the middle that ease climbing. As a pretty short finger crack you will be wishing for more. The crux is the last couple moves at the top where the crack thins and you must negotiate less straight-forward movement to clip the chains.
Find this climber's left of the 5.8 slab, or climber's right of Static Cling. It's on the climber's right side of the HUGE pullout on the downstream end of Wall Street.
Short route, small rack from .4 inch to 2". You can get a red AND gold camalot in on this route. Top can be protected by purple Metolius sized cam, or a nut.
Eat the Rich, short but hard!

This is a very fun route. A nice finger crack, but thin in the beginning.

One of my favorite Wall Street warm-up's, and this is harder than it looks, the finish is the real business

Jumped on this not knowing what it was and it was a really good route. Came down thinking it was an 11a, maybe I'm just a wuss but there was quit a bit of tight fingers with not a lot of feet. Awesome route none the less.
