Description 

This hand crack goes up up a steep overhang early on, and is harder than it looks. After surmounting the overhang, the original route finished left on Too Many Tacos. For a harder finish, continue straight up the face above to finish of the Gorgeous Face (5.10b), or move right to the bolt and finish on the Gorgeous Arete (5.10a).

Location 

Right side of Gorgeous Rocks, in the middle of the Gorgeous wall.

Protection 

Standard rack. Two bolt rap anchor on top.
