Walk to the left around from the Mel Cracks and boulder hop to the bottom of the upper left tier. The climb is on the right-hand side, a flakey looking crack in a vertical seam that ends before the top, with another crack located up and to the right.

Steepness on spikes (small cam early please) with the odd jam leads to the end of the first crack and a good rest. Traverse right and climb the well featured crack to the mother of all jugs.


Small cams, wires, medium cams for anchor.
