One of several great seam problems on the leftmost face of the Sanctuary. Start with a good right fingerlock and a large foot ledge and work up sloping laybacks and crimps to a good hold a few feet below the lip. The topout is easy but about 18 feet off the ground.


The leftmost wall of the Sanctuary is cut by several vertical seams. This problem follows the second one from the right.


A pad or two and spotters depending on your comfort level; the crux moves are easily protectable with a single pad. Good landing except for a couple trees a few feet back.
