Description 

This route follows a series of quality flakes and corners with fun jamming that nicely compliments the other classic face climbing pitches of the Brown Wall. Begin by jamming a right-facing corner into an offwidth (or bypassing the wideness with some fun face moves) and onto a good ledge. From here, jam up a low-angled right-facing narrow corner to a ledge with a two bolt anchor (slung with tat and a rap ring). This has very enjoyable climbing, and the gear is solid the entire way.

Location 

The route begins to the right of New Vector at the base of an obvious, right-facing corner leading to an offwidth.

Protection 

The guidebook suggests bringing a rack to #3 (doubles in #1 and #2 C4s) and an optional #6. I did not bring a #6 and therefore chose to do the face bypass (fun), but I did find a #5 useful to protect those moves.
