Description 

If you do the direct start (recommended), this is the powerful crux. Follow the thin crack to reach the small overhang and traverse 5 Ft to the left to gain the crack on Can I Do It... Follow the crack until it ends and then continue up the white face heading slightly left over thin horizontal seams to the top. This upper face is the technical crux, thin. A great route! If you do the direct start, it's 11a to start, then 10c, then more 11a.

Location 

Start in the thin finger crack 20 ft to the right of the start of Remission and Can I Do It Till I Need Glasses(direct start), otherwise do Can I Do It Till I Need Glasses but don't traverse right where the crack ends, stay straight.

Protection 

Gear up to #1 Camalot, mostly nuts and small cams, 95% 1" or less, Shuts.
