Description 

This is the thin finger crack to the left of Crimson Cringe. Start by climbing up the ramp. Place some gear with a long runner then turn the corner and bust up the thin crack to the anchors. There’s a rest along the way. There’s a photo of this route on the back cover of the Super Topo Yosemite Valley free climbs guide.

Location 

To the Left of Crimson Cringe

Protection 

Thin to about .4
To protect the moves getting into the crack take a #2 or #3 forget which. You'll know from the base.
