Description Suggest change

Climb about 10 feet up to a piton (no pro). Clip that pin, continue up to a second pin. Backup the second pin with a small nut or a ball nut and make a couple delicate moves up to the overlap. Belay from the ledge about 15 above the crux. You can scramble down right from here or continue up Thin Slabs / Thin Slabs Direct.

Location Suggest change

~20 feet right of the Thin Slabs / Thin Slabs Direct crack.

Protection Suggest change

No pro before the first pin, but the climbing is straight forward. I'm 5'8" and have no trouble clipping the first pin from a good stance, but some partners have said this is harder if shorter. I used a ball nut to back up the pin at the crux. Small nuts may work there too (see comments below).
