Starting the left trend.

Description 

This is a great climb with the crux right off of the deck. Finger jam high enough to sink a tight hand and continue up this tight hand/hands crack as it curves slightly to the left with the right side of the crack overlapping a bit. This climb is not to be missed!

Location 

This lies seven feet right of Short Corner. Step across the gap.

Protection 

#0.4, #0.5, #0.75, doubles #1-#2 Camalot.

I'd recommend bringing at least one # 3 up. . . .

I would say 2 or 3 #3 cams and much harder than short corner in my opinion.

Bring a couple 3s. The whole "curvy" part is #3 size.
