Description 

Just left of Play Misty is this wildly positioned and well protected route. Take a light rack (up to a #2 Camalot or equivalent) and many quickdraws. The first pitch (crux) climbs an obvious crack, thin at first, past two bolts and three fixed pins to a 2-bolt belay. The second pitch follows a finger crack right to a slab, then climbs straight up past three bolts to a small ledge (optional belay; same as Play Misty). From here, work right past four bolts up a steep headwall to flakes and a short hand crack.

Location 

Just to the right of central crack. The obvious corner, that turns into a hand crack.

Protection 

Bring a light rack to a 2" cam, and many quickdraws. Anchors at the top.
