Diagonal

Description 

Go up the low angled start of the Box, then head left to the base of the crack. Crank up on some decent locks and tricky feet to the top.

Location 

Just left of the Box, the prominent corner on the cliff, and to the right of the thin seam of Monkey Fingers. The right to left diagonal finger crack should be obvious.

Protection 

This would be an exciting lead, on small gear that would go in the same places you'd want your fingers. Most will be happy for the TR, but bring long slings, the trees are about 20-30 feet from the edge.
