I have recently revisited this route since doing the FA probably 25 years ago. This is some of the best crack climbing at East A- perfect hands with some bomber finger locks at the crux.

This thing is crazy! Dicey and solid at the same time. Can't wait to come back to this one and check in with my progress. Bring your lead head, I feel like there are some tens in Indian Creek that climb easier than this beast.
