Description 

This route is on the Upper Gemstone. To reach the route, hike past the Lower Gemstone and scramble up the hillside aiming for the large dihedral on the South face. Look for a clean hand crack that splits the face to the right of the dihedral and arete. Jam and lieback about 65' up and right to a ledge (5.8+), move right and climb a short, steep corner (5.9) and belay above. Walk off to climber's right.

Protection 

Nuts and cams up to 2".
