Description 

The route follows a double crack system (mostly thin crack) on a steep face. It is shown in the D'Antonio guide, where it is given the very incorrect rating of 5.8. The climbing consists of a mix of crack and face moves.

Location 

This route is on the left side of the cliff, 10 feet left of Mind Shaft Crack Middle, and to the right of the big, right-facing dihedral.

Protection 

Small to medium gear for the climb, plus one or two larger pieces for the anchor.

Per: Dave Holliday - This route has a bolted rappel setup at the top.

This route probably is not "10c", but it is certainly harder than the 5.8 shown in the D'Antonio guide.
