Description 

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.

Location 

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.

Protection 

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.
