Description 

A varied and wandering route with numerous cruxes. Start up a crack/corner shared with Uneasy Reach, then bust out right - hand traversing a shallow ledge. Pull up and over a bulge using a nice finger-to-hand crack and some stemming, then hand traverse right again. Pull over a second bulge using a flake/finger crack and some peripheral holds, then step right into the OW for a few feet before pulling over the top.


Location 

Approximately center of the west wall, where the formation reaches it's maximum height. Many solo/lead options to access the top and set a TR. Rap from anchors atop The Fin/Easy Reach or downclimb the east side.


Protection 

Standard rack, single 1/4" bolt anchor can and should be backed up with gear.
