Slightly meandering at the start, this technical route keeps you guessing all the way to the corner above, where thin fingers are an asset.
This is located on the Minion Wall. Start on a clean slab left of the arete, finishes on thin fingers corner.
8 bolts & gear to 1.5", bring a couple extra finger-size cams.
It is possible to step right to the anchors on Crandle Hammer Arete, but the perfect crack above should not be missed.

Another fine line. The routes at this wall are of the highest quality. What a great job by the first ascent team's that really added tyre value to the ever grateful climbing community!!! Thanks for the routes, guys!!

This was way harder than the two "10c"'s we did earlier, Lord of the Files and White Dwarf. There's a perplexing slab move near the top of the slab section. The corner is sustained and a bit scary due to a potential ledge fall if one piece pulls. Once you start up the corner it's hard to stop to place gear. A #0.75 Camalot (green) is useful at the top. I placed a #0.5, but it was umbrella'd.

Couple tricky thin spots on this one. One or two of the bolts on the upper part of the slab were in weird locations that were tough to clip and didn't really protect against the ledges below.
