Description 

Thin crack and stemming route with a couple of reasonable bonus moves mid-pitch. Good friction.

Location 

Directly left of Focal Point.

Protection 

Several good small-medium nut placements available at the start, then several good small cam placements follow (for example Metolius small yellows and blues, 2X each.) I managed to place a #2 gold camalot in a little pod, but not sure where a #3 would go.(?) A white-painted pin makes thin moves mid-pitch feel cozy. The line is climbable directly up to a point level with the Focal Point anchors; optionally use a long sling to clip a bolt and/or piton around the arete. Alternatively, sneak over to Focal Point at the bolt/pin to avoid the last couple of stemming moves. Use Focal Point anchors.
