Toward the left side of the Moosehead area. Start is the same as A Kind Gesture. Start in the obvious under cling crack that starts on the left and moves up and right. Once making a few moves in the under cling head straight up towards the bolt. Keep going up along the arete and slab towards a large flake higher up. You will pass a piton at the flake on your way to the bolted anchors at the top.

You can set this up as a TR by hiking up the steep trail on the left side of the crag to the anchors.

Standard rack, one bolt, one piton, bolted anchors

I thought this was a fun climb with a variety of moves, really straightforward beta. Fine line indeed, if only it went for another 100.

As of 7/27/2016, this is no longer the left-most route at this location. There appears to be some new development/bolt placement to the climbers left of the arete.

Left most route is Rain Delay. It has been around as long as Its a Fine Line, just never made it into the book.
