First part of climb up slightly overhanging handcr...

Description 

Fairly sustained w/ no obvious crux, points to ponder include: figuring out what technique to use in the dihedral, passing a small overhanging pod, then fighting the pump for the last 1/3 of climb

Location 

Far left Sparks Wall, just left of a large freestanding column, beginning on a 10ft. high ledge, is a slightly overhanging handcrack in a right facing dihedral. The dihedral opens up after 65 feet to a flat face and a 25 ft section of slightly overhanging perfect hands to an anchor

Protection 

BD #1 at bottom then #2's for 80 ft. A few #3 Friends also came in handy.

This route is actually on the far right side of the Critic's Choice wall.

yeah, i think you're right. kind of a dusty flare, but with good hands in the back. i don't remember it being super far to the right of critics choice (ie closer to sparks than CC). kind of surprised it ended up on the sparks wall (?).
