DescriptionThe paper thin crack on the right side of the face, just a sliver... it goes! Labeled as "seam" on the topo in the Ruckman Guide, this improbable looking line is a riot of a route and a true test of gear fiddlery. Mildly sequential, this technical climb takes small, but good protection.
Scramble up a chossy step feature to an off-set seam. Hover up the crack using finger tips, pinches, and thin, thin edges. The route's crux comes at about a body length off the ledge and is fairly manageable. A precarious move or two more and you can reach a rest below a shallow roof. Pop over the roof and finish on the ledge above. Build an anchor and walk off, or continue up Glass Ocean or Sail Away for a nice rope stretcher.
