Description 

On the south end of Lower Decadent - Asian Wall, one will see a face between 2 distinct chimneys/squeeze chimneys. This face will be split every 15 feet or so by a pair of twin horizontal cracks (ie. face for 15 feet 2 horizontal cracks, 15 more feet of face, 2 more horizontal cracks). Climb this face utilizing the cracks for protection, at the 3rd set cross right into the chimney/crack system. Continue to the top. Beware of gritty rock down low.

Protection 

Medium to large gear is useful with runners.
