Description 

This is like a mini OOTD in that it is steep, roofy, and traversey, but lacks the solid rock quality.

Start at a thin crack and left facing corner below a roof. Traverse the roof and continue up the corner to a rest at another roof. Place a piece and step left past the roof. Continue up through a hand crack system. From here either 1) travers left to a wide hand crack with a wedged block sticking out about half way up, 2) continue up a finger crack to a horizontal and move left into 1, or 3) go right and up another thin crack. All points will take you to the anchors. There is no real cruxy section, fairly continuous at the grade.

Be careful not to kick rocks down on other parties below you as the approach and some sections might contain loose rock. I try to clean it up a bit more.

Location 

Located at the top of the gulley, above the Green Tongue. Start in the broken corner on an airy ledge. The belay might want a piece to anchor in to.

Protection 

standard rack of double to 3 inch
