Description 

Fun boulder problem to an easy wide crack. Do a few fun steep hand crack moves in the red to yellow camalot size then pull the roof via cupped hands with decent feet. Then enter a 30' section of #4-#5 camalot size crack with edges all around. This section climbs like a sport climb unless you want to practice your wide crack technique.

Location 

Look for the right leaning overhung handcrack that leads to a lower angle wide crack facing west around the corner from sales pitch.

Protection 

doubles #1 camalot to #3 camalot, with at least one #4 or #5 camalot, unless you want to run it out. Build an anchor for TR with your extra yellow and blue camalot, then clean it and walk off to the north or south via 5th class scrambling, or rap Sales Pitch.
