This is a 45 degree overhanging finger crack with a bouldery start and finish. Sean's original name for this route is right on the money with pain tolerance being key. What this line lacks in length it makes up for in power. Find the crux exiting the crack and making it to the anchors. On the free ascent of this, the first pitch actually ended at a no-hands stance above the anchors, but below the second roof. Enjoy one of Arkansas' most difficult cracks.
This route is located at the SW end (climber's left) of Vally of the Blind. Find this route by walking from the walk-down past all of the routes listed in Frisbie's guide to a long roof system that faces the Sam's Throne area. On the right side of this roof system is a short, overhanging finger crack with chain anchors over the first roof.
