Description 

Climb middle right leaning crack on the wall.
This is my favourite climb on the cracked wall. Interesting crux sections with a crack that just fades away. The crux has no protection and puts you in ground fall, so don't head up this one unless you know you can climb it. There are two pines at the top ledge that can be used for a TR, or you can head all the way up and use some beefier trees.


Protection 

Crux has no protection with ground fall potential, so watch out. Otherwise, Gear to 1", nuts and cams. I think I usually bring a ball-nut or two on this one for the thin crack near the top.

While I don't remember what piece precisely goes in near the crux, there is pro. I am a coward, and I have lead this many times. Like many climbs in CT, you need a variety of tools and some ingenuity to protect.
