Description 

Climb the crack/corner right of the start of "Over Easy" to the roof, then join that route.

This is a much better start to "Over Easy".

Cams, slings for knobs.

Use small cams for the thin lieback. a .3 camalot and a .5 for the roof crack works fine.

This was a very cool route, easily the best 5.9 and under offering I tried on this spire. The starting finger crack leads to an easy roof, leads to the classic knob hiking shared with Over Easy.
