An upper wall testpiece that features a hard but well-protected crux. Start at a right-leaning crack, the base of which disappears into a hole in the ramp.
18m. Follow the crack pleasantly to a hand-ledge. Continue more steeply to where it thins, and make a couple of urgent pulls up the wall just left of the crack to an easy finish up a tiny corner.

Did this straight after Arms Race, but even so, the crux felt HARD. You get a semi-rest just before but it's tricky to place gear high enough to comfortably protect. I ended up deadpointing with my left hand up the well-chalked pinches, thought I was off at one stage but *just* managed the onsight!!
