Description 

Though a little dirty, this amazing overhanging crack system deserves way more traffic and will clean up nicely if more people get on it. It was originally graded 5.10 but it sure felt every bit 5.11a to me.

P1: Climb easy terrain to crack, follow crack to bushy ledge and belay on gear (140 feet)
P2: Continue up cracks to below some blocky roofs, escape on face to the right and continue to the top (70 feet)

Location 

The obvious wide crack system 30 feet right of boulder problem in the sky.

Protection 

Doubles of cams including some bigger stuff to #5 camalot if you want to sew it up.
