Description 

This climb starts the same as No Answer and then follows the obvious tips crack out right. The climb is an eliminate as the original guidebook instructs to stay off holds in the large crack out left. Once you are committed to the tips crack though the line becomes natural and the use of holds out left isn't compelling. Top out on a nice ledge.


Location 

Same start as No Answer. Max Factor breaks out right to the obvious tips crack.


Protection 

Small pro. Props to the early climbers that probably lead this with just nuts. I was glad to have my TCUs. Don't bring anything over finger sized.
