Nice moves, occasionally tricky gear (Tri-Cams work wonders in a few spots, particularly that all-important black .125 puppy), several cerebral moments.
Climb up following the crack line. When it dies out just shy of the top, look for key black Tri-Cam placements in pockets along the horizontal grooves.


There are three thin crack lines tracing their way up the wall between the obvious wide crack of Aquarius and the hand/fist crack running through the bulge (Starstruck). This is the leftmost one, about 8' right of Aquarius.


Standard Adk. Rack, but definitely bring that black .125 Tri-Cam.

IMPORTANT - the black Tricam is the 0.25. The white is the .125. Since the black is specified by color here (who uses numbers for the small pieces??), I assume that's correct. I stayed away from this route based on the book specifying the .125.
