DescriptionHand jams, finger-lock, and stem through the first third to reach a stance. Commit to the twin seams, staying left of the hand-crack to the right (a separate route), and launch into a delicate and powerful boulder problem on twin seams in iron-hard basalt. Upon reaching holds at the end of the crux, continue straight up the thin-hand crack to the final section of engaging ending, finishing at the rim. The belay ledge at the base of this climb also accesses a old-school hand-crack to the west of Iron Sharpens Iron.
The old-school route has a bong piton or something similar with some tat on it. The line is well-defined, and is not hard to follow.
