Generic Crack 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a
  Apr 16 - Endurance test at end of day. Flaring crack makes it not as smooth as a normal crack.
People's Choice 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b
  Apr 16 - 2 Falls on leading 1st slab pitch. Linked 1 + 2. 3rd pitch was sketchy!

Fingers up to second nuckle at the bottom.  Just finger tips for the rest of the crack.  There's lot of hidden face stuff though!  We scrambled up some 5th class stuff to a cordelette/webbing around a horn.  This is where we started our climb(allowed for an easy link up of pitches 1 & 2).  Pitch 2 (for us) started underneath the obvious twin cracks.  Our pitch 3 started from underneath a small roof.  You must traverse left into the chimney from here.  There's a piton in chimney right where the roof is.  We then scrambled to the top.  Dotted lines are behind rock in the picture.  Climbing in Zen Garden in Maple Canyon  Climbing El Cracko Diablo  Notice the nice vertical features that make for excellent hands/feet/protection.  (sorry for being washed out)
