Description

This is an excellent pitch to the left of Thindependence. It takes an elegant thin crack next to an arete and has a fixed pin 30 feet up. A first crux (.11a) is encountered just of the ground and is a tad on the hairy side (10 feet up, bad pro). A second crux (.10+) is encountered after the pin on delicate liebacking and is well protected. Follow some 5.9 cracks after the arete peters out up to the second pitch on Pear Buttress. This route is hard to toprope without a 200 foot rope, better to continue on to the top or rap off near Toot.

Protection

RPs, small stoppers, a red Metolius TCU, for just after the crux, a few medium sized pieces for the belay.
