Start by scrambling up to the start of the short finger/hand crack in the left facing corner, and follow this to a small ledge at the base of the 3-4" crack in the corner. I found getting established in the crack to be the crux. Follow this to bolted anchors. I was barely able to jam my fists in the small constrictions, and I have somewhat large fists.
Located in the left facing corner a short distance uphill from Little John Right.
We did this as a warmup before Moby Dick, and I thought it worked well. This crack is similar in size and somewhat steeper than the crack at the top of Moby Dick (although Moby Dick is not in a corner). This climb is fun, but I wish the fists portion were longer . . .
