Description 

This is the right of the splitter thin crack systems mentioned on the crag page and for No Guts. The direct line to reach the crack system is a corner with a huge but apparently well lodged block. However, the recommended start is the more attractive thin hands crack in the dihedral 15 or so feet to the right, or slightly unprotected face climbing between the two. Work your way into a low angle crack that leads to the thin crack. Above is a left-diagonalling roof band, which is actually the bottom of a massive detached but seemingly well perched block. Either traverse under the roof band to the upper part of Viewmaster Arete (where you'll spot a bolt), which avoids the massive block, or pass the roofband on its left and step right to get on top of the massive block and gain the summit.

Protection 

Nuts and a single set of cams from micro to a No. 2 (red) Camalot.
