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