Nick entering the crux.

Description 

After climbing the easy dihedral pitch of Psycho Path or Seagull's Traverse, start your second pitch by traversing right then up on runnout easy terrain up to a 25' dihedral.

Place whatever creative gear you can get as you can as you balance your way up to the steep part of the dihedral where you are rewarded with plentiful easy placements. After solid gear, step out left and up the arete (5.9) or stay in the thin finger crack for more of a challenge (5.10). At the top of the dihedral, follow the crack past a short crux that is much harder than it looks!
Gear is tricky to place correctly here!

20' later the gear mostly dies out as the difficulty backs off to 5.8 as you work your way up and left to the notch just to the right of the Northeast Tower.

Location 

20 feet right of Psycho Path.

Protection 

Standard rack up to 1" with emphasis on .3 sized gear. Sections of the crack require a lot of gear fiddling to find enough of a construction to counteract the lack of friction in the crack.

Fantastic! Can't wait to again get on the sea-cliffs of the north coast!

Another stellar route! Fun laybacking up a finger to tips crack. Placed a textbook blue tcu and it pulled under a yank test, then a solid purple tcu popped out when loaded as a directional! Very slick rock, be best to TR or sew it up super tight! Same anchor as psychopath.
