Description

This route starts on the west face of Labor Dome, just left of center. The route climbs a short left-facing crack/corner to reach a small roof, where it traverses right (still easy) to reach a thinning crack that climbs upward and curves slightly right at the top. Climb that crack, placing gear while you can. Put your small pieces up as high and as possible and then crank the crux sequence (a tiny cam might be as high as your waist). It's good to have a few pieces, since small cams are known to pull from desert granite. Finish on the easier slab and belay in a rounded ledge below the roof.

To descend, walk/scramble to climber's right (south) as described in the "rock" page.

Protection

A set of nuts and cams from hand-sized to as small as possible (the smaller they are, the closer they will be when you pull the crux.)
