Description 

50 feet left of Red Argyle is a beautiful obvious finger crack in a corner. The climb starts directly out of the water, but you can traverse in from the right easily enough. The bushes at the beginning of the corner are annoying but not as bad as they look, and the upper section is a joy. This is an excellent route.

A long sling and a couple of medium nuts/hexes work well for an anchor
