BETA PHOTO: Thin crack in corner in the center of the pic.

Description 

Follow thinning crack in corner to a bulgy crux up high, then up and right to chains. The direct finish (up then right instead of right then up) is solid 10+ish.

Location 

Downstream on West Wall in Shady Grove. Thin crack in corner just right of The Winsloner & Darkstar.

Protection 

Lots of thin cams & nuts up to a #2 Camalot.

this is the 10 to try if you dont lead 10 on gear.... it is at least a number grade easier than stick it, which is legit 10, IMHO. you can get a blue camalot in dark star before committing to the slim shady crack, and you can get a 00mastercam up high and right during the easy but run out traverse to the anchors, though it is probably moral support only. nice climb!
