Short finger crack to the left of Negative Feedback. The crux move is the first few moves off the ledge. The most strenuous part is stopping to place gear. Follow finger crack to roof and traverse off to the left about 10 Ft. Sustained, mostly because of the stances needed to place gear. Some loose blocks and lichen near the top. This would be much more popular if located in an easier to reach section of the cliff.


30 Ft. left of Malevolence. The best protected approach is to climb the right facing corner about 10 Ft. left of the start to Malevolence. To descend, you can either scramble off the summit or traverse right and use the shuts at the top of Malevolence.


Small gear. Small nuts and aliens(or similar). A large piece, 3.5 camolot or so, can be placed for the traverse under the roof but if you made it this far, it's no sweat.
