The Great Escape:

Get in touch with your inner masochist for this v7. If you like thin edgy crimps, you'll love this line.

This line sit-starts inside of the dark cave/room/tunnel at the Alcatraz Boulder, on the low jug ledge arete. The line scales the minuscule crimp edges to link into the finishing moves to "Escape From Alcatraz" and finishes out of the hole.

Sit start matched on the very low jug ledge. pull through the credit card/razor crimps up through the steep, blunt arete corner. Reach out of the bulge and make a stout lunge to gain the bomber ledge to the left. Exit through the hole.
