Start up a slightly left slanting off fingers crack, move right (rock is poor if continuing left) then head back left and up to anchors on a right facing wall.
This route starts 30 feet left and slightly down the hill from 5.6 Corner.
Camalots .4 to 1. An extra .5 or .75 and a few medium nuts to sew it up.

I sewed it up pretty well with single cams from blue Zero (about .3 C4) up to #4 friend. After the initial fingers section, it mellows out A LOT, but the rock gets much worse.

If this ends at/below a rotten rock choked dihedral, then it's called Critical Mass. Thinking it was the last route that could be sneaked in to the area. Of course we were wrong. F.A. Mike Baker, Andy Roberts, and Wilson Goodrich.

A fun little route away from the crowds of the main crag. Lots of little edges around the crack make for some good rests.
