Your enjoyment of this route may depend upon your love of the wide, but it is such a mellow climb that it should be no problem where it is wide. Any difficulty would be more likely encountered at the bulge up top. Perhaps this is even a good route to introduce a climber to wide cracks on, and familiarize oneself or others with arm bars, chicken wings and knee-locks before one gets on a climb where difficulty actually requires it.
Start with a hand-to-fist section, up past some wide crack in a left-facing corner, then up over a small awkward bulge and to the top. Belay from a cord or the rope on large boulders up top.
This is the right most of the 3 obvious crack/corner systems on the West Face of the crag 'East Of Avalon.' Because of the wide crack, it can be seen from far away.
A #3, 4, and 5 C4 Camalot plus a few nuts will sew it up, though creative gear in smaller sized will do. Wide gear is also useful on the 'Crack Land
' wall on Avalon, where you probably approached this crag from.
