Description 

This offwidth corner is found in a large recess to the left of Cobra Crack. Climb a triangular block at the base, then up the crescent offwidth to an overhanging finish. Very clean and excellent, and it would probably be rated 5.10c in Yosemite.

Protection 

Place a #5 Camalot in the lower section and then push two #6's above your head the rest of the way. There is a piton on the wall to your right which you can clip if you come out into a lieback for the last few feet.

2 bolt anchor/rap. I think one 60m should get you down, the climb is not "40m" as the guidebook says.
