This is a thirty-foot-long, 80-degree overhung offwidth problem. Though the length, overhang, and offwidth suggest a much harder problem, some large holds inside the crack make the climbing considerably easier. This is a good, moderate introduction to offwidth roof cracks. The rock texture is abrasive, so knee protection is recommended for the leg jams.
When walking up the trail from the Panorama Point parking lot, the trail passes a bouldering traverse on the south side of the Panorama Rock area. Just north of the trail is a small hole. Sit start the climb on good edges just east of this hole, climb into the hole, then grovel upside-down for 30 feet or so until you emerge on a ledge on the other side of the rock.
Kneepads or long pants.
