Description 

Short thin crack to the left of Jack Of Hearts. It starts with slopey jugs, ascends past a slot and dents as it thins to fingers and then to a steep stretch of tips, and finishes via gratifying jugs onto the big ledge.

Descent 

Walk off to climber's left via the gap furthest back, squeezing past a yucca, then down easy mulchy slope steps

Protection 

Thin to 0.75", gear anchor.

Actually pretty good, though short. Fun layback moves with good feet. Naturally links into Sen Blen and makes it a normal length route, so do that for sure. Vogel gives it 10d R and Miramontes 11 a or b R. I could see 10d, but 11a feels fair to me.

Definitely NOT R or PG13 though, this route protects very well with small cams (Red/Yellow C3s or equivalent), you can really sew it up with no trouble.
