Description 

Fun little crack, if a bit loose in places. The crux is probably turning the roof near the top. But there are good holds everywhere, so it's not too bad. After turning the roof, clip the last bolt on Magic Helmet (the bolted 5.10 to the right) and finish on Magic Helmet's anchors.

Location 

The crack in the corner to the left of Magic Helmet.

Protection 

A few small to medium sized pieces. One bolt. Uses the chains on Magic Helmet.

I used purple, green, and red BD Camalots to protect the route to the bolt. Maybe a yellow one, too. This climb is nothing spectacular but it's pretty fun. You don't really need to jam--there are enough face holds.
