Description 

This climb is located about fifty feet left of October Light.

Start in a left-leaning trough that slowly peters out to a crack switch right. Follow this hands crack to a ledge where you can make a belay or with long runners climb through steep thin bulge to an all natural belay. This route is always guaranteed to be free of crowds and is actually pretty fun.


Protection 

Rack of cams up to #4 Camalot; a set of stoppers and some long runners; and a #1 and #0.75, I think, for the anchor.

The name tells all about the rock quality on this climb

This route has some really cool climbing and is very fun. On top rope, a fun variation is to stay on the face for the whole climb until the last crack. It is unprotectable for most of the way this way but offers some fun climbing, especially if you stay left of the second crack system. Probably goes at a similar grade to using the crack.
