This engaging route climbs a left-leaning thin seam on a steep ramp for about half it's length and then higher steepens as it opens up and gets easier. Near the top it joins Stainless Steel Rat (5.10) and finishes in a slot of sorts.

The protection is adequate on this route and although not quite an "R" rated route you'll definitely have to work to get the gear placed.


The obvious left-leaning seam/crack in the center of the face and just left of Vaino's Crack.


Take a good selection of micro-wires, small cams and gear to 2.5" for the belay. HB offsets are quite useful on this route.
