Great crack system up arete on left side of wall. Left start is overhanging hands and is 5.10a. Right start is more technical, but less pumpy and is 5.9. Rap off rings.
Route is on North Wall of Mariuolumne Dome. If descending from Hobbit Book (or other routes in that area), this wall is next to the descent gully. If coming from below, park as for Drug Dome or Lamb Dome. Walk on a good climbers' trail right around Lamb Dome, then left past Drug Dome. Continue through boulders up and right until the wall is reached. This route is on the very left edge of the wall.

Great single pitch route on good rock, with fun jams, and a new, fat, stainless, bolted anchor - who could ask for more? I stemmed off of the block on the 5.10 start, which makes it more secure and less sustained.
