Description 

This route gets 3 stars in Yoder's book so I had to try it, also one of the few routes in the shade. I was not a fan of this bear hugging the column with no foot holds after the 2nd bolt with a ways to the 3rd bolt. A good challenge to figure out.

Location 

Start crack is 3rd left over from People Places Things. This is a dirty ledge up left from the wall with Eat a Peach, passing 2 broken leaning columns.

Protection 

I think the dirty hand crack to off width is the approach on the right side of column, left side face that I went up had no pro for 25 feet. Some small cams can supplement the 5 bolts. Rusty chain and bolts with thin SMC hangers up top. Bring cordellete to bring anchor out over sharp top if TR.

Be aware of the potential for rope slicing falls if you wander too far to the sides (happened to us this past weekend). Quite a few thin SMC hangers as well.
