rapping off alimony crack

Description 

Climb the left of two parallel cracks at the left side of the cliff. The crux is pulling through a short, steep section (5.8). Beyond this, easy climbing leads to a bolted rap anchor.

Two raps with a single 60m rope will get you back to the ground. The second rap is a full 100', so be careful. You can also TR Fingertips from the lower anchor.

Location 

The parallel cracks just right and uphill from Fingertips at the left end of the cliff.

Protection 

A light rack up to 3".

Fun little climb. For a spicy top out option, climb through some beautiful, low angle knob climbing (5.5 X). We did it 'cause my partner left a biner at the top of Crescent Arch. I didn't want to leave anything behind and it looked possible. Not an established route to my knowledge but the first pitch is a ton of fun especially because it's basically free solo for the first 200 feet! Some gear and easy simul after that.

We really need a 5 star system here on MP - 2/5. Good for its length, but like the guide cracks, crux followed by cruising. Perfect-sized hand jams through the crux for me.

Anyone knows what the right crack with the wide pod goes at?
