Description 

This fun climb follows a thin corner crack. A committing but easy balancy move takes you out of Roger's corner and into the next corner immediately right. Thin fingerlocks and delicate stemming continue up, over two bulges, to easier terrain and the anchors.

Location 

Immediately right of Roger's Corner.

Protection 

Gear is adequate but thin. Mostly small nuts and small cams. Most of the rock is solid but some is crumbly, especially near the top.

pretty tricky to protect this. plenty of big fall potential.

Just did this yesterday. I thought this route was quite fun despite the cob webs.

It feels pretty protectable to me but a fall might be interesting given the bulges. Bring several small cams and nuts, no big gear needed. There is also a nice tuft of grass growing in the last crack where you will likely want a jam.

Definitely worth doing while waiting for the other nearby stuff to free up.
