Description 

Great route! Challenging direct start (best), but also possible to traverse in from left to ledge. Fairly sustained finger crack, awkward flared pod (crux). Not many rests.

Location 

South Bridge Wall - left of Your Mother, Where Real Men Dare, Maranatha, Beginners Only....keep walking left along wall until two obvious face cracks appear together. Of the two (twin Gemini Cracks), this is the right one.

Protection 

Good pro. Small-medium nuts, cams, etc. Shuts.
