Description 

Start on the giant hueco/undercling to make a long, somewhat bouldery move. From here, an enduro-crimp fest awaits. Short, and not all that pumpy unless crimps aren't your thing. One tricky move near the top to (you guessed it) a small crimp. Awesome movement and cool holds. Good technical skills will get you through this one just fine.

Location 

Left sector of Indy Wall

Not really technical. Just crimp, step, repeat. Some holds are a bit tweaky if your fingers are larger.
