Climbers getting ready to do either Cranium Crack ...

Description 

The crux of this route comes quickly while trying to surmount the initial roof on fun under-clings and marginal feet. After the 4th bolt, move right and climb the face-climbers dream crack with plenty of jugs and even a finger/hand jam or two.

Protection 

Bolts (this entire route could also be done with gear and a more direct start which would bring the grade down to 5.8 or so but also includes poor quality rock down low.)
