At the crux.

Description 

After some easy climbing in a 3-4 inch sideways crack, climb up left and around the corner and place gear in a 0.5-1 inch seam, a green Camalot works very well here. Pull the crux finger lock to get to some good holds. Be creative on a few gear placements.

Location 

The route starts in the obvious corner to the right of Pete's Kitchen.

Protection 

Small sizes to #3 Camalot. Sling for a tree at the top or climb to the left and rappel off the anchors of Pete's Kitchen.

This is an interesting and challenging route. Getting in pro and getting established around the corner are probably the cruxes. FWIW, it felt noticeably harder than Morning Wood.

I agree with Leo, this felt harder than Morning Wood.
