Description Suggest change

Tight hands double cracks lead to very thin climbing. Finish through steep varied climbing to a 1" layback section. The thin part is actually kinda a chimney section reminiscent of the bolt move on Desert Shield, but longer. Easy to hang out and place gear, but very difficult to move. Very cool and unusual. I had to clean it up quite a bit on the FA, so it may be dirty again. Likely not seen a 2nd ascent. Worth the effort.

Location Suggest change

It's in the book. Left side of Broken Tooth. There is (was?) a plaque.

Protection Suggest change

Tight hands to #0 TCUS. Take three or four #0s. Save some 1" for the top. I had a big cam (4.5 camalot) for a pod in the middle, but maybe not necessary.
