Description Suggest change

Start at the right side of a loose pillar to gain access to a splitter thin hand crack which widens to a hand crack, past a few wedged blocks, eventually transitioning left to a splitter different hand crack for about 50 feet. Finish with a few moves of fist/offwidth over a small roof/bulge to gain anchors to the left of the crack.

Location Suggest change

Hike in Day Canyon past Working Class Hero, continue on the old jeep trail for another 5 minutes or so. On the right side, identify a striking dihedral with at least 2 anchors visible from the trail, followed by to the left a shorter dihedral guarded by a wide OW/chimney slot/roof. Route further to the left. It is an obvious thin hands to OW splitter at the top of loose hueco-studded buttress. I think a 70m would make it down fine, though we climbed with an 80m. The anchor consists of a drilled piton, an old but serviceable kong 1/4 bolt and a 3rd buttonhead bolt, and could probably stand replacing.

Protection Suggest change

Double rack from #0.75 to #3 Camalots, single #4 Camalot, a few long runners. Optional, a few micro cams for the start.
