Description Suggest change

A hard climb with some interesting gear. While I have seen this described as a handcrack in some versions of guides, I beg to differ. It is more a series of pods and flares with some crack between, and even then not really such a size so as to be called a handcrack.
Locate the pair of climbs, Perforator and B3. Perhaps 5 meters left of Perforator, boulder/climb some pockets up and at the bottom of a crack (5.10, PG13) and get some gear ASAP. Climb the "crack system" with interesting jams and holds (5.11-) to a ledge and then finish in a corner that is not hard in and of itself (5.9?), but given the exhaustion, will probably feel hard.

Location Suggest change

On the right side of Long Wall. Walk past the big offwidth (Yuk) and go around a corner and past a group of several very tall sport routes. Just past these is a huge roof almost against a large left-facing corner. The corner to the roof is Perforator, the "crack" left of that is B3.

Protection Suggest change

A standard rack to 3" with emphasis on the 2" size. Bolted anchor up top. You can reach the ground with a 70m, If not, double ropes to rap off, or access anchors from one of the sport routes and rap down in a series.
