BETA PHOTO: The crack section at the top is too much fun!

Description 

Bouldery moves at first are the crux! After these north face thinkers, clip the bolt and move left across the arete to better rock thus avoiding the sketchy blocks (your belayer is praying that you avoid these blocks). The rest of the climbing is reachy and slightly over hung on good stone. The crack protects well and the last section is really fun.

Location 

This line starts on the north side of Kestrel Tower and then moves around the arete and onto the east face.

Protection 

BD .3,.4, and a .5 X 1 (I used a brown Camp Tricam) as well as three QDs and runners for the top. There is now a chain with a quick link at the top.
