A wonderful climb in a remote section of the park. Bouldery finger locks off the deck leads to sustained thin-hands jamming, all overhanging! If this thing got climbed more than once a decade it might clean up nicely. As is, a bit sharp and mildly grainy. Tape highly recommended unless you're a universal donor. Nothing bigger than #1 camalot for the lead, a 2 or 3" piece is helpful for the anchor.

Great pictures Richard.
I got fired up for this climb while housesitting for the Evanses and looking thru Dave's old slides of Josh FAs.
I remember fiddling in gear at the crux start and my friend Rico saying, just let me do it, but by then I had the pro in and fortunately I didn't let him snake the lead! Good times. Short but high quality splitter and pretty obscure for Josh.
