Jesse warmin the fingies before hitting the crux. ...

Description 

Great route that starts off wide hands and pinched to fingers. Go a little past the anchors for a good hold rather then hanging by finger jams to clip the anchor

Location 

On the left-facing wall next to the curving Offwidth. Before Special Verdict by 100 or so yards.

Protection 

One of each Camalot, #0.5-3.

10a? Whoah! I guess I was not warmed up and not feeling the love or something. I thought it was solid 5.10.. I would have said 10d! The top is a tough size.
