Description 

Start as for Breezy, but instead of stepping left continue straight up the crack. Finger jams through the overhang, a big pull over the lip, and some clutch hand jams bring you into an easy face and a final fun flake before you reach a ledge and anchors.

There is often a puddle at the base of this climb, and it can be tough to keep your rope out of it.

Location 

On the South Claw of First Cave. North-facing wall. The continuous crack from the ground through the "wave" overhang.

Protection 

Gear to 1"
316 steel (2011)

sweet moves on a short tricky line. a finger lock past the overhang helps a great deal, as does faith in feet and gear.
