You'll find this short south-facing hand crack left of Night Trap (aka The Sound of Waves).

A bouldery start (5.9) gives way to moderate (5.7) hand jamming with the occasional wide section. Gear belay and rap off using the anchors atop Night Trap.

Only worth doing as a warm-up for the more difficult lines nearby, as a trip here solely for this route would be somewhat of a disappointment. The climbing is enjoyable but nothing special, which earns it one star out of five.
