Description 

This diminutive thing is worth it, I guess. It's essentially two thin crack moves broken by a stance.

Scramble up from the pond along the left trending ramp at the base of the main tower. On the far left side of the lower face, climb the obvious thin crack. Gear is plentiful, but make sure you set it well, otherwise a tumble from the first move could be painful. If it feels harder than graded, it's because you're not using the juggy face holds. Belay on gear from the ledge. Top-roping may require some long slings and serious abrasion.

Location 

Left side of Clocktower's lower face

Protection 

Gear to .75"
