BETA PHOTO: Telegraph Crack.
Telegraph Crack starts with a small roof move and contains fingers to large hands moves between stances. The crux is probably halfway or more towards the top at a bulge with a waist high rail on the right side of the large-hands to fist-sized crack. This climb looks like a pile from a distance, but is actually quite fun to climb with its mixture of pure crack and face moves. A fun moderate option.
If you are headed up to the access gully on the East side of Snowshed (to access climbs like Nova Express, etc.), this climb will be the varied crack splitting a north-facing wall.
medium nuts - small/medium cams to 3". Rap anchor at top.

This is a pretty cool climb. At first glance it looks quite easy, but it's more technical than it looks. You certainly need to be confident with hand and foot jams. For me the crux was about 3/4 of the way up, the crack flares, there's not much for the feet, and what you hope to be bomber horizontals above are rather rounded. To me, solid 5.8. Protects well.
The rap from the top anchor is about 85 feet.
