Description 

Power up a thin crack in the dark patina face and clip a bolt at the end of the crack, make some thin cruxy moves to reach another bolt and then run it to the top on grainy tan-colored rock to the top. Decent climbing on this but the poorly protected moves up high coupled with the old bolts make this route especially spine-tingling.

Perhaps it's best to toprope this route until the bolts get replaced.

Location 

Left of Jessica's Crack in the center of the face between Avant Chain and Don't Touch Jessica's Crack.

Protection 

2 bolts (1/4"), gear to 1", 2 bolt anchor (3/8")
