Description

This route is a bit tricky for me. Start off at the crack on the right (my friends tell me the right wall is off-route, but use it if you need it) Go up and find some small pockets out left with small feet. Trust me, the footholds are there, they just are microscopic. The crux, I feel, is making it to the tiny pocket with the right sequence. Definitely hit it with your right hand, otherwise it messes everthing up. Continue with a hard cross-through to some good two-finger holes and then go left to connect with Pocket Rib (V1)

Location

Very last route all the way to the right. Look for lots of black streaks on the rock and is to the right of the blunt arete (Pocket Rib)

Get a firm toe in the pocket for the left and you'll find this a soft tick for V6.
