BETA PHOTO: The rope is in the crack.
I thought this route climbed a little nicer than Left Crack. It has nice jams, is a little short, but is steep and interesting.
This is on the right end of the ledge and right of where Left Crack and Jaguary
While several #2 Friends would be useful, a variety from a #0.5 Camalot work fine. A #0.75 Camalot seemed to protect the most strenuous section very well.

The correct name for this climb is: Mirage, 5.9 according to the old Erickson guide. FA: Dan Hare and Allen Bradley, in 1979. I rated it as a 5.9+ when I climbed it back in the mid 1980s. I didn't think it was a 10 then....

Rodger is incorrect. Erickson's book is referring to Mirage on The Short Cliff with Three Cracks, below Bitty Buttress. This is Right Crack. It was also called Last Crack on the Right in Boulder Climbs North, but the FA is unknown.

Fun route and worth doing if you are in the area. Unfortunately, ends in a dirty thin corner that detracts from the climb overall. NO ANCHOR even though the book indicates one - downclimb low 5th class to the west (or downlead). There are two cold shuts about 30 feet west of the route, but easier to just downclimb.
