Start in the perfect crack (protect with cams)and find yourself on a ledge. From here the climbing starts and includes a unique and delicate crux.


This is the right hand route on the wall.

Jeeze! Stop putting up such hard routes...I'm only strong in the winter! What size gear?

If I remember correctly it's in the 1 to 1 3/4" range. The "trad" section is real easy though. The route is really a 3 star boulder problem in the middle of a 5.10 route. Probably not really a 3 star route though. I didn't want Tim's route to be lonely.
