Description

The direct version of the crescent, named for its... insecure and body tension based nature. Start with a low left underling and right on the obvious rail. With bad feet and a tight core move up, staying on the rail and avoiding baling to the arete. A really good addition to the field

Location

Behind Zig zag Crack. Same as the crescent

Protection

Bit of a pit landing. One or two pads to shove in the crevice and one or two more to even things out does the trick. Spotter for the end is appreciated

Got any photos or video? It would be cool to see how this line actually climbs. I thought it would probably be pretty cool, I just didn't want to devote much time to it because I had lots of other projects. May 6, 2016

Essentially you lie back the crescent feature with some sneaky smudge feet until it turns. At the top of the crescent I used some wild reverse toe hook drop knee action to get set and top out straight up. Aug 9, 2016
