Description 

Pull the initial roof on Kneel Armstrong, then an exciting traverse left leads to the vertical crack. Like a monkey on a pole, climb the very edge of the thin crack to an amazing solution jug then head on up to the anchors for Kneel Armstrong.

Location 

This route shares the start and anchors with Kneel Armstrong.

Protection 

Rack to #3 Camalot with extra thin wires to protect the crux.

A good route with excellent stone/pro. However, the ramp system beneath the crux would love to wreak havoc on you ankles. Leave the #3 behind.
