Description 

Crinoid Direct follows a thin crimpers up the steep bottom face of Artifact Wall slab. Work the crimpers through the lower crux to easier climbing past the second bolt. Past the thrid bolt, use an undercling to make a high clip and layback right off the football sized chert pocket. Mantle and continue up to the small roof. Use another undercling to clip the last bolt before the anchors.

Location 

Start center of the Artifact Wall slab and follow the thin crimpers up to the first bolt then easier climbing.

Protection 

Quick Draws and a helmet for the belayer. Two thin bands of chert cross the Artifact Wall and continue to shed small arrow down towards belayers. The climb is well protected but a stick clip, spotter, or bouldering pad is recommended.
