Description

Climb the crack to the left of Sticky Fingers (5.10). It is a beautiful right arching crack that looks way more straight forward than it is.
Jam and layback up the crack; you may be surprised at how thin the crack gets in the back. It's not a hand crack. There was no real crux as I could see, but it's a sustained pitch that wears you down over the full 80 or so feet. Tricky bugger...

Slow and Easy is a good route to get on while you wait for the crowds to thin on the full length routes.

Location

Just to the right of Duet is a smooth less than vertical face with two right leaning cracks. This is the left one.

Protection

Looks like it takes lots of big gear but it takes a selection so don't forget the small stuff.
