This is the pumpy, overhanging, hand crack after the 1st pitch of "Necronomicom". It has good jams and exposure!
Climb first pitch of Necro, then out of the ledge belay climb up 10' and head out right up the overhanging, hand crack, secret agent holds are also inside the crack. It will clean up better with travel. Rap other routes or walk down right.
Double set of cams #0.5-#3, TCUs, natural tree belay on top slab.

This pitch was first climbed by me and Greg Davis in 1977. We called it Necronomicon Direct. As described, it goes up an overhanging hand crack. We rated it 5.10d or 5.11. All good pro nothing fixed. It is not 666 Variation, sorry. I was also on the FA of the first pitch with Lou Dawson. Steve Shea.

Sure didn't know. Harder exit for sure. Looks like a mission to correct a lot of pass routes in this database fo' sho'.
