This is a striking line on the back, upper tier of the Plumb line crag. A challenging face move gets you to the left, upper crack system. This crack begins as a fist crack, morphs into a flared tips/ face move, then to a left crack that is hands and ring locks.
This line was first attempted by Scarpelli. A wild country nut and a carabiner were left on the route. Someone yanked the biner sometime this summer, leaving speculation of an ascent, but the biner was far more accessible than the climb. We will probably not put an anchor on this since it is nice to be able to leave this unique pillar unscathed.
Pass Sky box going north east to the back of the crag and it is on a single pillar formation. two cracks, one with a horizontal split make this climb. Down climb the back (5.7, 5.7+?) to get off pillar.
2 #4 Camalots, #0.5-#2 cams, small nuts.

This is that one! That Fuc**ng one that is so IN YOUR FACE!
I've looked at that pillar so many times, but I never sacked up and tried it.
