Sleight of Hand

Description 

A sweet route that doesn't see nearly the traffic of some the 12s at mondo or FCR. Super techy and delicate climbing. Long and strong, and I'm down to get the friction on, although don't pull too hard on the flake at the top. Do this route!

Location 

Angles up and to the left halfway between obvious crack systems. Two bolt anchor and open shuts at the top

Protection 

14 Bolts

Beware of the flake at the top. The climbing above the first anchor looks dirty and uninteresting. The climbing to the first anchor is sustained and very enjoyable. Classic!

Very obvious thin crux between the 1st and 3rd bolts. Everything above is just sequential and sustained but not necessarily all that hard. Wanders a bit. Be open-minded with your interpretation of where to go.
