This face route is to the left and below of the Scalpel. It could also be described as being tucked in behind the upper portion of the route Hairy Airy. This difficult climb requires some delicate footwork with a powerful move to gain the upper crack. Shorter folks will have a bit more difficulty with this. Finish a 5.9 roofish section at the top.

This is a fun little can do some variations on the bottom getting into the upper seam, anywhere from 10+ to a stout 11.
