Description 

It's been almost 10 years since I've done it, but since no one else is pushing their way to the front of the line to write a description, I'll volunteer even though the passage of time precludes me from giving a detailed description.

This route starts in a slot just right of the much more classic East Ridge, and takes the hand (and sometimes fist, if I remember correctly) crack past at least one bulge to the same big ledge as the aforementioned route. The main thing I remember is that it felt way harder than East Ridge, which I had climbed a few days before. Perhaps, this was because it was one of my first trad leads of that grade, or because I missed a bomber face hold and did an awkward jam instead? Either way, it's probably harder than East Ridge.

Standard rack.
