Description Suggest change

Just right of Crescent Crack the climb is a face with 2 bolted routes that share anchors. Closet Lycra is the right-most. The seam is the obvious weakness with which this climb starts. This, however, provides a decision making process. Do you put in the brass which will interfere with your fingterips, or not. Going from bolt 1 to 2 is the crux, however the traverse to bolt 3 still holds your attention finished off with a fun mantle on the arete. From here the climb eases considerably.

4 draws for the route, and possibly 1 brass nut in a seam for your 1st piece of gear. There are chains at the top. If you want to make it a sport route, skip the brass down low. Not like it's going to do much good anyway.
