This is a vertical hand crack with one small overhang, fairly exposed. This would be a good choice for a well-protected 5.6 trad lead. Rappel from the top.

This route is rated a 5.6 - but I think its actually harder then Sail Away that is rated 5.8-. The crux is just about where you see the horizontal crack on the right. Its sort of a bulging crack and the horizontal crack makes it discontinuous.

Thought I would start on this as a warmup for Sail Away, but in retrospect I should have just started on Sail Away.
