Description

Begin on the west face, left of Mr. Clean. Climb One O'Clock Demo or the first pitch of the Howling to a ledge with bolt anchors. Climb a crack just left of the anchor for 15 ft, then traverse into a second crack with a small bulge, following this to a ledge on the right and a bolt anchor. This route involves thin fingers, stemming, and face climbing.

Protection

Small wires and finger-sized cams. Optional hand-sized piece.

This route is an excellent, overlooked line. A few moderate face moves off the belay are poorly protected and require careful attention, but once the corner is reached the route is clean and protects well. The corner is short but sustained until the broken section before the anchor. May 14, 2011

Gear is a little scarce until the bulge is reached. After that I placed way more Green C3's and under than "finger-size" pieces. Crack is still fairly clean.
