Description Suggest change

This thing was originally under a thick layer of lichen (not of the endangerd variety), but after a good bit of cleaning up it revealed some really cool climbing. Down low there is a funky corner and up high there are lots of quartz features for holds. The crux utilizes what is likely the smallest hold that I've ever actually been able to "hold" onto, hence the name.

Climb the short fist crack in the right side of a flake to a stance and get a medium cam. Continue up using cool quartz knobs past a bolt to a right diagonaling corner. Follow this corner past a purple TCU and to the bolt line. Follow the bolt line up the face and arete past some thin moves and cool crystals to a 2 bolt anchor and lower off. 90'
