Pollux below the crux.
Pollux is shorter but more sustained than the neighboring crack Castor. One follows the crack system up about 35 feet, to where it splits. Either way is about the same difficulty. After reaching the large ledge traverse right to anchors. A directional for the second right below the ledge might be appreciated.
Pollux is the right crack in the twin crack system.
Handsize and smaller. Anchors at the top.

Noticable crux midway or so, after that it's hero hands to the top.

The crux for me is the move off the flexi flake midway up. If you pull down on it, the top half of the flake bends outward.

Sweet crack route with some good crimps thrown in for variety

Great pitch. The only thing keeping it from classic status in my opinion is the length, or lack thereof. For me the crux was getting into and then out of the pod at about 15 feet.

Left a #8 Rock on the route yesterday after my partner took a 15 footer on it and welded it in place. Small wires are super helpful on this route. Lots of fun, just wish it was longer.
