From the anchors atop Deer in the Headlights, pull over a small roof and make a juggy hand-traverse left until you pull onto a stance beneath the upper right-facing dihedral. Pull past some hollow flakes in the lower corner (I took the prybar to them and they seem ok, but be ginger anyway, you can entirely avoid them on big edges to the right if you want), the upper corner is steep clean fingercrack laybacking with decent gear. It's like a much milder version of Vice Gripped. Either backclean or use an extended runner on the third bolt to reduce rope drag.


The 2nd pitch above Deer in the Headlights.


4 bolts, small-med stoppers, set of cams #.4-#1 BD, chains.

Fun second pitch! Crack takes gear fairly well, took medium sized stoppers and a single set of cams from #.5 - 2, placed a stopper down low and a #.5 up higher. Could have placed another #.5 or #1 if I wanted to really sew up the crack.
