The face just left of Perfect Medium has two thin seams running up it. Has anyone ever climbed it?

Hey Remo, it has been done. I keep thinking it goes somewhere in the V1-3 range. I think it's named Manhattan or something like that. I've got a copy of Git On It if you want to photo copy it.

Steve, Thanks man, I would love a copy of that. I've been trying to get it for years.
Your not talking about using the large crack in the corner are you? Yeah that's easy. The two seams in the middle are super thin, and it seams really hard, but maybe I'm just missing something.

Yeah Remo, I think it goes at V-easy using that big right hand crack. I've never tried it just using the two seams. I'll try to see what Eric said in the guide and i'll photo copy one for you.

Funny little guide.
