Description 

One of the longest and most fulfilling lines at the crag ascends a wonderful set of cracks and face in between the 'Sweet Cracks' and the belly button.
P1) Start the Regular Route, but instead of breaking left, head up into a 5.8 right facing corner above the ledge. At the top of the corner build a belay on a comfortable ledge.
P2) From the belay, climb the face up and to the right to the start of a thin crack. The crack ends at a large ledge. Gear belay.
P3) Move the belay up (4th class) and to the right to a crack at the base of a left facing corner. This crack finishes at the top of the crag.

Location 

Starts on the Regular Route. Walk off to the back and down the east scree and talus field. Better to have your approach shoes, the walk-off is TERRIBLE, UGLY, ETC.!

Protection 

Standard rack to 3". Doubles of fingers and hands. Offset nuts, shoulder length slings, and tricams work well.
