Description 

This is a steep thin crack. Start with a bouldery move along a seam to reach a horizontal 12' up. Fixed pin here. Make a couple of crux moves along the thin crack, passing another pin before reaching a second horizontal at 30'. The crack continues until just below the summit, where a mantle puts you on top. Mostly steep face climbing with crack protection.
