A wide crack that takes wide gear if you have it, but is easy enough to run out as well.
Climb up the obvious wide crack and some face moves to ascend the easy crack not far right of Right of Passage and Cruising lane. TOp out and belay from trees back a ways. To descend, go East (right) to the anchors above Manic Impression and rap from those.


Around to the right of the inset that holds Cruising Lane and Right Of Passage, pass a bolted Arete and then arrive at the base of this wide crack, just a few meters past.


Wide gear- whatever you have. Trad anchor up top.
