Description 

Pretty much the only column joint wide enough to crack climb in this section of the Upper. A superb and physically demanding old school crack splits a sea of modern face climbs.

Location 

Immediately left of the prominant 'outie' column The Urge.

Protection 

Protects perfectly a la any of the classic Lower Gorge 5.10s

May seem a bit stout compared to the 10b's in the Lower. I'm loathe to upgrade anything but this route doesn't see much traffic and probably lacks the buzz necessary to form a consensus yet.
