Short and very sweet! Crack widens in a couple places to get a toe in, otherwise it's pretty thin. Protects well except through the 8-foot crux section. Tiny nuts, pinky tricams, and C-4's. Watched several folks climb it, and the consensus was mostly 5.9. Because this climb is a beautiful straight line on a "stays dry" section of wall, located conveniently on the trail between Calvin Hollow and the Boneyard staircase, it will probably see a lot of use. Note that is actually about 80 feet left of "Son of a Wanted Man."

Fun. A little manky but interesting moves. Way easier than the Shining, even if you discount the bouldery start.
