Description 

(aka Donkey Kong Jr. Direct) Delicate moves in the thin crack and crimps out right. Protects in the thin crack. Move right and take the #4 size crack of DK Jr. to the chains. The angle of the rock keeps it from being pumpy and consistent with 9+.

Location 

This route is the thin crack below the OW of DK Jr.

Protection 

Bottom Section: a couple small cams from 0-2 TCUs, nuts, and a black tricam wouldn't hurt either.

Top: 2 or 3 BD #4s
