Description 

The crux is the opening handcrack. Feet are pretty sketchy; you've got to make good use of what little there is, and crank the jams.
Jam up the crack to its end at a small overhang. Move left to the stance shared with Firecracker. climb the right-rising, flaring wide crack in the slab to a horizontal break. Work up a shallow vertical crack to another horizontal, then (V1) step left 5' to a right-rising vertical crack. Take it to the ledge.
V1 Jammer Direct 5.9+: Step up and right onto the ramp below the bolt of Blueberry Jam and finish as for that route.

Location 

This route begins at the 15' tall, vertical tight-hands crack just right of the "scramble-up". It is 15' left of the cleft marking the start of the Gray-Harrison "alpine" route.

Protection 

Nuts, and cams to 4"
While this route goes up a very wide crack at one point, small cams can be used deep in it.
