OW and slightly overhanging start. Good stuff

Description 

This route follows the splitter crack on the north side of Podunk. Climb the crack, then follow a short face to the top. Protection is good, and one rope should be adequate for the descent.

Protection 

Standard Rack, hand size pieces are probably best.

Protection is good?? Bwahahaha! Yeah, it's excellent until the last 25', which are just above a ledge. Let's be clear, the crack does not go to the top, and it can only be called 5.6 if you finish it from the south side of the ledge as a second pitch or with heinous rope drag. The direct is 5.10+. Excellent outing, nonetheless!
