BETA PHOTO: Crack a no go is the line that follows the cracks ...

Climb the large dihedral and crack about 2 feet to the right of it up a block on the left side of the road cut. A brief period where the crack is too wide for fist jams is the crux.


Pro to 4 inches, there's a smaller crack within the main one making most any sized gear usefull.There are two bolts atop the ledge for rappelling off, but they don't work so well to top rope from unless you use a long sling.

A short stout crack. A bit trickier to lead than it looks from the base. I don't know if I agree with the previous poster with regards to this crack vs. Primer, but I guess that's the beauty of climbing.
