DescriptionThis climb begins just right of O'Kelley's Crack and is distinguished by a shallow right-facing flake at the start. Lieback the flake (5.10) to it's end, clip a bolt and make some crimpy moves (crux) reaching for a hand jam under a tooth of rock below a jagged roof. Work right along the roof (strenuous to place gear) and then make some finishing face moves to top out just left of Finish What You Started. Descend by walking off.
Originally done with two bolts, which were placed on rappel, this now sports a single bolt making it a bit more necky. Three, maybe four stars out of five.
