Nice hand and finger crack. The crux is 15 feet or so off the deck. It's a great crack for teaching basic crack climbing technique.
It's a two minute walk south of the backcountry permit center. It's located on the northwest side at the very base of the dome.
Eats all kinds of pro (nuts, SLCDs, hexes, etc.) and there are stout natural anchors on top.

Easy to build a gear anchor. Trees get tired at crags like this from overuse. Given enough time there will be no trees. If you can use a gear anchor and walk off climber's left. Good climb and very well protected.

Lead to RIGHT of trees to save them rope wear! Also your top rope shouldn't run along them this way.
