Follow the small ledges and holds up to the roof. Pull the roof using the crack and continue to the top using the crack. The crack is somewhat shallow, making jams difficult at times. The crux is definitely the crack section. Its called mean streak for a reason.
In the middle of the Midnight Buttress
find a black streak that goes about half way up the pink rock and turns into a small roof with a crack in the white rock above.
Nuts, Cams, Hexes, nothing bigger than hand sized. Standard top rope setup.

Definately a great climb. It starts out easy and gets hard a few feet below the roof. There is a key hold that you can't see from below the roof but it bomber if you can get to it. Short people will need to do some interesting footwork.
