Description

Start a couple of feet left of Slot Machine (the huge off-width in the middle of the wall). A bouldery start leads to to a stance; follow a finger crack to the top (crux). It's 5.5 horizontals after the crux.

I also think this is more difficult than Golden Dream, especially if you are height disadvantaged. It's also fun to climb the face with side pulls on the left arete. 9+ Nov 18, 2011
Maybe you were inadvertently on "Completely Francois" (5.10d)?

Edit - Disregard that...CF is not close enough to get involved.

I did notice that it matters which side of the vertical crack you're on. One side might be quite straightforward if you're really tall. Otherwise, you're going to have to work a bit. I'd call this 9+ the way I did it (I'm not esp. tall) but anyone who couldn't reach what I did would be in solid 5.10 territory.

Also, the start is not "a couple feet left of SM". It's almost at the arete (left end of the face). Jul 28, 2011

Deceptively tricky crux. Personally, I thought this climb was harder than fickle fingers and golden dream. Aug 30, 2010
