Description 

Climb the obvious crack using mostly hand jams and some liebacking up to a ledge and then finish with a short left-facing corner to gain the ledge with anchors. One star out of five.

This crack might be a good lead for someone just learning how to place pro as it takes good gear the entire way and doesn't get done as much as some of the other routes nearby.

Location 

This is the obvious wider crack just right of Only Outlaws Have Guns.

Protection 

Gear to 3.5", 2 bolt anchor/rap

I thought this route was a very enjoyable and would do it again. You can always find hand holds and solid feet. Takes gear wonderfully.

Wide and dirty crack. I would recommend 3-4 yellow or blue C4s in addition to the standard rack (depending how much you want to sew it up). I found myself without enough gear near the top and had to grab some of my lower-placed pieces...

I found this to be thin hands - I had a tough time with this one.

Good crack for practicing fist and hand crack climbing technique. Plenty of gear slots available plus a rap anchor makes this route worth the effort. Or at the very least an access route to top rope harder nearby climbs.

Wasn't in the guide book but looked cool so we climbed it. Standard rack to 3.5". Highlight was firing up the flake to the left of the crack.
