Description 

On the left side of Main Rock's east face, this route ascends a curving crack that starts thin and opens up to chimney-width. Stem up an make a few slabby moves to gain the crack. The name is a bit strange, as there is only 1 handjam (ok, maybe 2 for shorties) on the entire route.

One may rap off from the pinnacle, or continue up 5.6R slab to the summit bolts.

Location 

Left side of the east face. The route ascends the right side of the obvious pinnacle on the skyline.

Protection 

A few choice pieces to 2" or so. Sling the pinnacle for an anchor, or continue to the summit bolts atop Main Rock.
