Start by climbing the ROUX corner until you can traverse Left to reach the start of the thin crack. Climb the crack and make the reachy crux move to a good hold. Then follow the left trending finger crack to reach the top of Lichen or Leave it. Very thin face/crack climbing.


If you locate Lichen or Leave It, this thin crack is just to the right.


Small gear. BD micronuts work well at the crux, plus some small camming devices 1" or less.

Climbing is super thin but didn't find the crux move reachy.

Exciting lead. Bring a #4 BD offset.
