BETA PHOTO: Steeper than it appears in the photo.

Description 

This is a right-facing, overhanging, OW corner. The cruxes are tighter-than-knee.

Ground rules for .10c: standing start, anything goes.

Ground rules for .10d/11a: sit start, anything goes.

Location 

Wind your way through small boulders, squeeze through a passage, then look right.

Protection 

None or a spotter. Alternatively use a large cam on a tether. Note that a crash pad won't help much, since the concern is falling out with your leg caught in the crack.
