On the far right end of Airation Buttress, to your left as you hike out from the top of Thin Air there is a short cliff with a striking crack angling left to right with an obvious chock stone just of the ground.

The strenuous boulder start leads to a dreamy, if a bit short hand crack. Eventually you join up with the top of the Mini off-width and belay from an obvious tree.

The crux is absolutely getting past the chock stone. I really enjoyed it once I puzzled it out but on my onsight attempt I injured some ribs groveling in to the little alcove above the stone. Don't make my mistake! Keep your ribs away from that sharp edge.

I will be happy to do it regularly now that I know how its done.

Does anyone know the actual name of this thing? I cant find it in the book and Rick Wilcox didn't know, and he knows some stuff.
