On the far climber's right side of the Alcove (3rd route from the right I think). A pumpy and steep route but has plenty of rests. Stays shaded until late in the morning. Start in oily, greasy rock just right of a small cave. Three bolts of this terrible rock leads to a daunting technical crack crux that has a beautiful sequence once you unlock it; scary to commit though! A few more moves leaves you beneath a roof with the second (power) crux move over the lip. A few more jugs land you at the chains. Even with the oily rock at the bottom, I had to give this 4 stars for the two crux moves that left a huge smile on my face! It's the best best 5.10 at Dierkes, at any grade!
