DescriptionThis is the obvious 6-inch crack in the left facing corner to the right of Tax Evasion and Climb and Punishment.
Contrary to the route name, speed is not of the essence, it is much better perhaps to take your time and look for good pro, use caution with the placements during the first half of the climb as there is a lot of junky rock. Stemming works better than lie-backing for this climb, in my opinion.
This climb is worth doing if you are in the area and have the time, but it is definitely only one star.
Descent: We traversed left to the slings above Climb and Punishment, use your best judgement.
