The middle of the climb.

Description 

Climb up to a pedestal and into a nice hand/finger crack. Initially awkward moves lead to nice edges and jams. The crack becomes wide at the top and gear becomes sparse, but a few easy moves find you at the anchor for The Gold Shut Route.

Location 

It is between Nine To Five and The Gold Shut Route.

Protection 

Gear up to #2 Friend and a two bolt anchor.

A good, thoughtful route. Worth doing twice.

This is a fun route! More than one 5.8 move for sure. The protection is good.
