Description Suggest change

This is an alternative to the oft-crowded East Slab. Also completely independent, unlike East of the Sun and East Slab East, so you won't feel like you are encroaching upon those on the East Slab. It is to the right of East Slab, aim for the black streak.

Start at the upper/easier start to East Slab up easy terrain to a right-angling finger crack. Place pro, perhaps Alien(s) too and move up and right. Pay attention to where the foot holds are or you will have to smear. Move up and left into a groove with a bucket. Then up and left up a ramp. Follow a short crack up. Now, you are near the black streak. Move up under the little overlap/roof. Here you can move left (easier) and pop over the overlap with a jug and easy left foot holds or move up and right (harder) up a hand crack and fire over the overlap/roof. Fire to the top. It is perhaps, 100 feet overall.

Now, you can catch a ride up the East Slab.
