A very fun climb! Definitely as intimidating as it looks, but very well protected. Try not to add to the DNA collection as you jam the very sharp crack near the top!

|Great route... Great position... Great Fun! If Classic Crack on Inner Outlet and the Doody Direct on the Gnomon are 5.8 then this route is 5.8. Beware of the awkward stance at the new anchors.|

|I agree about the anchor comment. I decided to build a gear anchor back in the cracks of the summit and it worked very well. I think belaying off the chains might send the 2nd into a swing if they fall.|
