This route is an obvious, left-facing dihedral. This route lies just left of where the main trail up to the crag meets the rock, and about 20 yards to the right of Wigglin' Worm.
Tape up your paws and climb the wide-hands crack (with a fist here or there for small handed people) to the top of this 70' crack and lower off of the fixed anchor.
Mostly #3-#3.5 cams. #2-#3 camalots are perfect.

This route is great if you have small hands and want to work on fists or if you have big hands and want to work on off-hands. My hands are medium-sized for a girl and I get bomber fists almost the whole way - albiet the jams hurt pretty bad. And suck it up on this one and go tapeless - teaches you better technique!!
NOTE: I'm not sure the route description above fits Three Fools, especially the picture. Three Fools is the splitter but short fist crack that splits the wall at the top of the approach trail.

The pro list above is wrong. If you bring a #2 BD it is going to stay on your harness. The smallest piece you want is a #3 BD or 3.5 WC And you are going to need a few of them. I did place a #4 WC and and old 3.5 BD on this to. You are going to get afternoon sun on this route as well.

That's really odd. I placed some.
So perhaps I have the wrong route here? Can anyone re-suggest what route this was so that I can "rename this" and so that the "3 fools" space acan be vacated for a different description?
Note: this was put online prior to the new guide- maybe there is a discrepancy in the bloom book Vs the old paperback folded IC guide?

The photo by Monty is what I thought was three fools; the photo of dave is what the new guide calls three fools. Damn!

The route your describing here is actually an unnamed 5.10 #12 in the new Bloom guide. Three Fools is farther right and climbs a slightly overhanging big hand and fist crack (#3-#3.5 Camalots, maybe the new #4's might fit at the widest spot?)

Agree, all 3s with a 3.5 at the top; #2s won't fit. Great warmup route!
