Descent time: 2 hours
Number of pitches: 6
Height of route: 700' route, 1700' total

A beautiful crack system immediately right of Locksmith Dihedral. The first two pitches are hidden behind a massive pillar leaning against the wall. There is a bivy for one at the top of Pitch 4, the Spy in the Sky. The FA team placed only six pins on the original ascent on the 6th pitch. Delicate pin craft or the donation of some fixed pins by future parties will allow this route to become a clean classic.

Rack: see topo

Descent: rap the route w/ 2 60m ropes.
