can be climbed either in the diagonal corner or on the face to the left of that. (We found it a fantastic night climb, and thus the name!)
2 variations. One on teh face, one in the diagonal crack

Good clean fun. Nice warm up or cool down after burning on the finger crack on Devine. Three very distinctly different starts to this one; each fun in its own way.
