The finest route in WCJ has a hard start. Once past this, the route follows a superb, sustained finger and hand crack. Climb left of a lower crack to a bulge (peg). Pull through with difficulty to the ledge above then head up the wall to gain the crack. Thrash up this (off-fingers and small cams ), the hanging corner is your target; make it that far and you're home.
