Shino on the upper layback section. Locker fingers...

Description 

This route is full-on for its first half before it even considers giving you a breather. This route will also vary in difficulty based on how big your fingers are. Those with skinny fingers may find this much more cruiser, while those with 'meat paws' may find it ridiculous...

Start 8 feet right of Flight of the Locusts and 6 feet left of The Sphinx in a thin and steep corner crack. Climb the pedestal and begin stemming (a few committing moves off the pedestal if you're not careful) and skinny jamming your way up the crack until some pods/discontinuous crack appear on your left. Creatively weave your way through these two cracks with good footwork and a good dose of lock-off strength. The crack will thin ever so slightly and the left crack will disappear as you reach a small stance where the crack widens. From here, hold off the fatigue and climb the slightly wider/easier crack to a flared pod and a semi-decent stance. A few more moves above the pod will yield a bunch of ledges and the chains.
