Description 

Rather than cutting left in the alcove up the hand crack, it goes straight up the gully through the flared offwidth to chimney as it widens and you search for small hand edges that rarely appear and wrong angled smears on the bulge to the left.

Location 

Start is shared with Blue Sky, Black Death. Can rap down Bolivian Freeze Job to the right.

Protection 

Gear to 5". Gear anchor.
