For this line, I stuck to about a 5' wide path centered on the incipient crack on the right side of the wall (right of Thin Crack). No holds on Thin Crack are on. Climb the face directly. There are small crimps and pinches and no gear. A bolt or two somewhere up there would make this leadable but there would still be a good chance of hitting the ledge if you blow the moves. As it is, it's an X route or a TR. In the heat of summer, this was technical, sequency and hard but really nice.
