Great over hanging crack on the Identity Wall; short but sweet!

it's a huge boulder problem 30' off the deck.

gear, well i don't know i haven't used gear in there in awhile, much less a rope. A second pitch goes up, not on the bolts, but up the weakness to the left. Suspect rock will be encountered.

if roped, there are two bolts that you can access to the right of a corner and top rope the second pitch of the dude, 11b.

rappel, or walk off.

Not an R, protection is good. I used .75-3 BD C4 for the route in that order. Also can be done with in an hour of the parking lot so not a grade III

Protects fine with 2-3 cams. no doubles required. Good jams, too bad it is so short.
