|Flowing Chi Wall
Arching hand crack in shallow corner. Crux at last moves. Clean, solid, gray basalt.
Gray rock, mid wall. Start up block pillar to reach crack.
Lower from chain anchor on boulder above climb. 70m rope preferred for rap, can use 60m but knot ends.
Excellent, standard rack.

I guess I missed the part about this being in a shallow corner and tried to climb the arching handcrack that splits into two cracks in the middle of the face. it was fun if burly and a little loose until I got to where the two cracks join again and the protection disappears and the holds do too and the rock looks really sketch. then I bailed...fortunately could place a few decent pieces which I was able to retrieve while getting lowered off the correct line, which is indeed in the shallow corner to the right. more a pair of angling twin handcracks then a single arching handcrack. that is a fun and pretty clean route. solid 9plus
