DescriptionThis is a toprope line just right (5-8 feet) of Back in Slacks, though it could conceivably be led if you really needed the tick. I TR'ed it right off the Back in Slacks anchors, clipped through the last bolt as a directional.
Start up the clean face with two huecos down and right of Power Bulge / Back in Slacks, then climb up a faint rib. Step up into a licheny hand crack (you'd get slammer gear here, but it would be 30 feet of 5.8 free soloing to get here) which peters out below a bulge. Move over the bulge on crimps to a big flake, then finish on the slab as per Back in Slacks.
It is not a great climb but gives you some mileage if you're in the area.
LocationThis is just right of Back in Slacks, south face of the Hand, Dinosaur Mountain.
ProtectionToprope -- hand-sized cams as directionals at mid-height.
Per Chris Weidner: to lead, Camalots #0.4, 0.75, 2, and 3.
