Fun climb, you can sew this crack up with chocks!
I think it is an area classic.

|This route is a lot of fun! Lots of places for gear and enough comfortable stances to place it. Excellent climb for new trad leaders.|

rating: 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
location: This route is the obvious crack which starts about 10-15 feet off the ground -- to the right of Yellow Pages (and to the right of Rotary and RC Direct?) -- and to the left of Vision of Stem (and to the left of Unappreciated?)
start: One guidebook suggests starting on Leap of Faith and up diagonally right to join the Crack. Perhaps a little easier (and sufficiently interesting) is to start on Vision of Stem then go left to the bottom of the Crack. Or the
Direct start Variation (5.9) -- Start roughly underneath the Crack (perhaps a bit to its left), and work up through two solution pockets to the left of Vision of Stem start. Interesting sequence.
the Crack: Lots of thoughtful fun moves with a variety of techniques. Pretty sustained in difficulty.
