Description 

This route does not deserve a star but is not so bad as to merit a bomb. Easy climbing leads to a splitter off-fingers crack in a hanging dihedral. This section is easy to stem. When the crack ends, place good pro and prepare to move into a area of crumbly, loose rock. Pro can be found here but is suspect due to the crappy rock and thus it merits a PG-13 rating. Another crack, in better rock appears just before a good ledge on which you can traverse to the anchors.


Location 

This is the crack immediately to the left of Crack and Face Route and right of Crowbar Cowboy. Traverse right at the top to the anchors on Crack and Face Route.


Protection 

Standard rack with an extra purple Camalot if you want to "sew it up".
