Nice one pitch climbs, mostly friction, with new bolts and 2 bolt anchors. South facing.
Turn to the south off US 285 onto the Foxton Rd. (Actually, with the new intersection, one has to turn right, then go under US285.)Drive the newly paved Foxton Rd. to its end at the junction with Jeffco 96. Turn left and drive 8.5 miles to the second of 2 large parking lots with toilets on the right side of the road (3.0 miles past abondoned S. Platte hotel at confluence, 2.3 past bridge for Colorado trail, 0.5 miles past the Java Dome/Bali Dome approach valley, 0.4 miles past the no swimming signs). Park then walk south along the road (Half Dome is just above) for 200 yards, then cut uphill to a faint trail that loops back to the north and leads to the crag. 15 minutes. Crag is not visible from the north, but if you drive too far, there will be a major road junction in another 1.5 miles or so, so one could turnaround and see it from the south.

The crack was rather dirty in between the routes it crosses and I wanted to give it a name rather than add another "unkown" to this area.Start as for Unknown 5.9, clipping the first bolt.
