BETA PHOTO: Strong Love.
Strong Love ascends a left-leaning finger to thin hand crack. Climb a few strange moves to get established onto a horizontal, place gear, and crank through the crux - the first five feet of the crack. After this, the climbing eases up a little. This is an awesome route.
Yellow Alien to #1 Camalot. Build a gear anchor up top with #2-#3 Camalots. Walk off to the East.
This is on the Southwest corner of Crystal Freeway, to the West of Gill Spire. As you are hiking up the box canyon trail, Strong Love sits above you to the North, splitting a large, rectangular boulder.

A worthy note regarding the grade of this route is it was originally done without sticky rubber using by today's standards clunky toed shoes. This is likely why this feels relatively soft compared to hand/fist cracks and OWs at the same grade at Vedauwoo by today's standards.
