Tough start. Hard to protect without taking away the finger pockets you need. I took one #4 and #5 for the wide crack above and walked them just a bit. Fun route, a bit cold in the winter though. Face NE, sun does not warm up the crack much. High Strung, Mental Physics and then Room to Shroom...these routes are in perfect order during a cold winter day to take advantage of the sun. With Joe K.
