This route is often TR'd after leading Savory Corner.

It has been led on gear but not sure if anyone has ever had a clean redpoint (Bill Saul?)

The gear is thin and very specific, but it is there. Very nice gymnastic route.

Start same as Savory Corner then immediately trend left up flakes to a crux bulge. Above this is a cruxy twin finger crack section that leads to nice 5.10 climbing to the top.

Highly recommended!
