The wide crack between 2 unknown sport climbs is one of the easier cracks at BONP, but the wideness of the crack makes it awkward. Cruxes include pulling past a bulge 15' up and another crux before you reach the ledge below the chains. This isn't actually that bad of a climb, and you can lieback or use face holds for much or all of the climb to avoid putting your arms and legs in the offwidth crack.
Cams: hand/fist/OW size, up to 5". 5.8 leaders probably will be happier if they have a #5 cam.

A comfortable rack for this would be (2)#4 Camalots, (2)#5 Camalots, an a #6 Camalot for the top out moves. This climb is a little dirty but actually pretty fun and worth at least doing once. The only turnoff is the Sardonic Death boulder that looms directly above this climb.
