Description

To find this route continue left on Reservoir Wall past the Pente area perhaps 150 meters to a route facing right in some semi-parallel cracks (Skank on the Hanglow, a new route with a slate at the bottom). Continue past this perhaps another 100 meters to a MASSIVE left facing corner with a off-hands to off-fists crack in it. It is characterized by three small roofs in the corner and a slate with the name, grade, & date placed in a horizontal, 2 meters up the climb.  Go up the runout start (5.8+ stemming) to reach 20M of perfect hand-jams, then continue up the widening crack past the 3 roofs, each bumping the leader to the left slightly.

This is a good route, but needs a little more traffic to be great. The rock is solid, the line good, the moves great, and the anchors trustworthy, However, under the first two roofs, there is a great accumulation of dust that is not yet well cleaned off. My partner did some hand-brushing, but the route needs more.
