Start below the crack and head up a little seam with no pro (5.7) and some moss. Reach a good stance at the base of the crack. Look up (this thing is steep!) and take some deep breaths. Get in some good gear and commit yourself. If you're a wimp, like me, you can use a face hold out right after you get established. Reach for some fist/arm jams and pull the crux, while imagining being on the FA solo. Struggle on up to a good stance and continue to the top of the crack. Then climb to the anchors passing an old bolt, not that hard.
Obstructed by trees, but hard to miss if you've found jamcrack wall. Although this is probably how one identifies jamcrack wall.
I placed one #.75, one #4, and one #2 (new camalots and in that order). #4 went in at the crux, but I think you could get by with a #3 if you don't want a #4. More or less of the the same depending on what you think. Said old bolt and then one or two pieces for the top. Two bolt anchor. Or move to the left before clipping the bolt for a different two bolt anchor

Ya its definately very possible to do the crux move with a number 3... We even had a #4 but the #3 seemed to be less in the way. Fun route. It looks OW but there are solid fist jams

Went with the #3 at the crux. It fits well in the right spot. Not really sure you need any pro there if you have done it before.

I did this again yesterday. Sweet and burly but just a bit short! I placed a 3 in the middle this time too; there is perfect spot for it right in front of your face. Definitely go left after the crack. I didn't even see the anchor straight above. You'll be able to TR some really steep, powerful, bouldery seam/crack too.
