Description 

This is a beautiful low angle finger crack, one of my favorite routes that I do almost every time I am out. The crux is about halfway up but its not a very defined crux.

This can be lead or toproped, but i suggest doing it without a rope if you are comfortable at this grade and with heights.

Location 

This is the obvious finger crack on the east side of the Barn Door Boulder, the crack runs almost the complete face.

Protection 

Pad, spotter, not falling.

If leading I would say some small nuts, if anyone else has better gear info on this let me know.
