Description 

At the left side of the Cinch Crack roof, start in the open dihedral. Work up to the rotten band, and traverse right under the roof on easy holds and low-angle smears. Now get ready! Find some marginal gear below the roof, and pull over on buckets or high step over the roof. Continue up and left around the next roof to a comfy belay.

It is quite a bit scary, mainly because the gear is suspect at the crux.


Location 

Left of the Cinch Crack roof, start in a small, obtuse dihedral.

Walk off to the northwest (uphill) and find a gully.


Protection 

Standard rack, but a ballnut protects the easy, right traverse.
