The base of Nice Crack Climb.

Follow the crack past the crux at a small overhang (easier if tall) to a stance. Move left and follow cracks and flakes to another overhang, then right up crack to large ledge and pine tree.
Descend by walking off right (faster) or left (as you face cliff).
At a short right-leaning crack in a corner, just right of Easy Keyhole
Regular Gunks rack. Tree at top for belay.

Slick start (rock is slippery) leads to a nice climb. Try the direct start, once you go up the layback start go straight up rather than traverse right. It's a one move variation, but, it's fun.

Did this on top rope today and it was a bunch of fun. I liked it more than Laurel, another nearby 5.7 crack climb. Three sections of interesting moves.
- *Update Oct 2014** -- This thing is getting super polished at the bottom, and from what I was told there's been at least one major leader fall/injury because of it. IMO it isn't worth leading with the risk.
