Description 

Fractions, aka The Left Side of the Leaning Pillar, was named Fractions after the Curve tune of the same name in 1997. I think it is a better name than Left Side of the Leaning Pillar. Begin Fractions in a narrow slot to gain a ledge above one bolt. Get clipped in from the face on the left and make an interesting sequence of finger switches while traversing out to the arete on very marginal feet. A dicey sequence gains a jug on the arete and the last clip. Waltz up to the anchor used for the Leaning Pillar. This was originally given 5.10d, but running it March 2002 it seemed to be more 5.11 than 5.10.

Half a dozen draws and a rope.
