Description 

Climbs the right-facing corner between Count on Your Fingers (5.9) and Conservative Policies (5.8). The climb is easier than it looks.

The climbing is pleasant but the rock quality is not great.


Location 

This route is in the center of Thin Wall between Count on Your Fingers and Conservative Policies.


Protection 

Plenty of gear in the crack in the corner. One can build an anchor at the top, or use the bolts on Count on Your Fingers.

It's a really fun route, and I'm not sure why it's not in the guide. I liked staying true to the dihedral and working out over the bulge at the top.

Holds are good, and moves are fun but anywhere you would want to put pro, the rock quality is terrible (crumbly and hollow) and would probably bust in the event of a fall.
