This line will be in the shade when the rest of the area is getting fired up.
The crux protects well with an RP on the face.

This is a great line to climb if you want to mix things up from the many lower angle, straight in, crack climbs found at the Perch. A good hands to wide hands crack (with right foot stemmed to the boulder) leads to some fun crimping and steep jamming above. A small BD nut gives you protection at your chest for the crux, and bomber cams go in a couple of feet above. Swing left to Steppenwolf at the top of the pillar, and run it to the anchor on a hero hand crack!
I believe this climb is referred to as "Alligator Skin" is the new Haas SP guidebook. Fitting.
