This is a nice flake & groove to a jam crack in a dihedral that draws your eye as you inspect the short NW face. It lies just L of a deep water groove (Twig's Lament) and the W arÍte of the crag. Only 75 or 80 ft, it can pack a workout. This is often in the shade until mid afternoon.
Find a boulder on the W arÍte of the crag, hop on. You can place a green alien from the boulder. Grab a hanging edge of the groove, muscle aboard. Work the edge & a crack above to good rests before the dihedral. Jam the toothy hand to fist crack to the top. The L wall is quite grippy & has scattered holds & dishes. There is a small tree & grooves 20 ft back from the top.
Scramble off to the SE.

Strenuous, but really fun. Definitely worth the effort,
