5.8 hands can be a nice respite from the relentles...

Description 

This is a nice short vertical crack that starts in a gully to hands, then thin hands to fingers out the top, in a left facing dihedral. A good route with good gear.

Location 

This is the obvious hand crack immediately to the right of To Catch A Thief.

Protection 

2-#2 Camalots, 2-#1 Camalots, and 1-#.5 Camalot. go to the 2 bolt cold shut anchor for To Catch A Thief.

Post fire I might upgrade this to 5.9. Top section is made a bit trickier by crumbly rock on left face, where you would like to smear or use edges for feet.
