This is the left variation of (the second pitch of) Sympathetic Hygiene.
P1) Same as Sympathetic Hygiene.
P2) Leave the belay by either climbing the unprotected 5.7 face to the right or straight up the 5.8 crack (and then break right) to the base of the thin crack.
At the top of the second pitch, two choices. You can exit right across the 3rd class ramp to the anchors at the top of 'Sweet Crack Center', or finish 'Sympathetic Hygiene' and do the really lousy walk-off.


Same as 'Sympathetic Hygiene'. To reiterate, the walk off is (short and) ugly/terrible. The climb is awesome, and should be done at least once.


Standard rack to 3", doubles in fingers and hands.
