Description 

Moderate thin hands lead to a leftward roof-traverse. Above the roof, lie-backs and fingerlocks quickly end as the crack pinches down. Thin stemming moves on small gear get you to a classic thank-god hold and a rest. More insecure palming, smearing, and arete-pinching is thankfully interrupted by another jug-rest where you set up for the final crux. Place your last pieces in the horizontal, and mentally prepare yourself for a wild and cruxy finishing sequence above the gear.


Location 

20' to the right of Gateway. Look for the obvious roof feature.


Protection 

Doubles BD #1-0.3, Triples of blue Metolius, and doubles down to tiny.
