Description 

The most prominent crack at the crag, also known as 'The Whipping Post'. Begin up the crack to a horizontal at 10'. Continue past a technical section to the bottom of a flare at another horizontal, you can get a no handed rest here by utilizing a knee bar. Through the flared section to yet another horizontal. About 1.5' above this, strenuously slot a #4 nut to protect the crux. Make a delicate move and up to a fixed anchor. Fun and somewhat technical. Popular.

Location 

Middle of the crag. Look for a flared section 2/3 of the way up.

Protection 

All of the pro is bomb provided you know how to look for gear placements. Standard rack. Fixed anchor at the top.
