Description 

Climb the crack just right of Da Kine.

Protection 

Tricky to protect. Bring a set of nuts and small cams.

I would feel nervous doing this as a trad lead although there were places for pro. Just didn't seem like too many bomber placements. Has some very fun moves on it. Harder than Da Kine.

I would call this a 5.10a. Delicate feet on tiny edges, some tenuous, one-finger holds in the crack, and thin moves up high add up to make this more difficult than it might appear. The pro runs out in the top section, making this a committing lead.

To do the climb right, stay to the right, away from the Dakine holds.
