Description 

A fun trad line that ascends the broken crack system and is generally good quality rock. The crux actually involves a solid hand jam, protecting nicely with a BD#3 and room for a #1 after you get above the bulge.

Location 

This starts down and to the right of the FA that wasn't in the steep crack. So, upslope and left to the start of Tan Hawk up.

Protection 

Single rack to BD#3, with doubles of 0.5, 0.75 and #1 if you want to place more gear.

Thanks, Geir -- this is, I think, a more natural "line" that the more straight up and down "line" that you and I were playing on that day with Marcy when we went through the hard move at the bulge. When back with Steve and Brenda a while back, I decided that I didn't want to add a bolt to protect that single hard move and, instead, wanted to have the route be all trad. Turns out to work really nicely and the crack quality is surprisingly nice. So, I hope you and Marcy like it!!

Yes it seems to look a lot better that way. I am psyched to try it out!
