Similar to its neighbor to the left (Cosmic Ray). Slightly more run-out, though microcams alleviate any real danger - if placed well.
Has a "Laurel" start: unprotected and difficult. Keep that 12' drop off the Ledge below in mind. It is much easier (and protectable) to start at Cosmic Ray and traverse over to this route.
Beware: there are a few "unclean" spots near midpoint; these cover questionable flakes and holds - not recommended you use them.


This is the middle of the three thin crack systems right of Aquarius, the left one being Cosmic Ray, the right one being the line of Starboard Tack


Plenty of microcams, offset nuts, and cams to 2". Tri-Cams may help in spots.
