BETA PHOTO: All It's Cracked Up To Be

Description 

Start in a dihedral and work your way to the 3rd bolt. Shake yourself out on a good rest and then prepare to fire the next 25 feet with limited rests. Move quick because your calves will be on fire from the stemming. Rest under a roof and get ready to fire the final overhanging moves. There are big jugs on the roof, so it's not as hard as it looks. It is, however, still a roof so motor through it or face the pump.

I thought the roof was one of the easier parts of the route, technically speaking, although your arms are a little pumped by the time you get up there!

Super fun climb, I agree with Jennifer the crux was not the overhung section at the end, there are several good rests before then.

Like most of the routes here stemming is a must! A lot less actual crack climbing than the name implies. The only part i thought was awkward was getting to the anchor above the roof.
