Description 

The cool, long corner at Island in the Sky. Start up the baggy #3s crack or the splitter #4 crack just right of it to a ledge (tough start for the grade). Continue up the low angle crack to the main dihedral. Continue to place somewhat difficult to find pro and bear hug up a fun flake to a bulge. Pull through to another ledge and one last splitter corner to the chains.

Location 

Starts right off the path, to the right of the short, left leaning crack to two ring anchor.

Protection 

Take at least doubles of .75camalot to #2 camalot. And at least a #3. You could take 2x #3 and 1x #4 camalot too. Also bring a set of nuts and some finger pieces (although you don't need to place finger gear if you dont want)
