This climbs the crack to the left of Panama Canal and shares it's anchors. Using features on the wall left of the crack helps with the bulge halfway up.

Access from the left side of a large creasote bush and make tricky moves to get established in the initial crack; higher the crack flares and gets wide as it passes alongside the left edge of a roof to finish with standard wide crack with grain.

Could be led with some big gear if motivated but it's easily toproped from the bolted anchors on Panama Canal.
