Description [Suggest Change]
This is the crack just left of Sail Away. As compared to Sail Away, it is a bit more difficult technically and a fair degree more difficult to protect, especially the traversing section close to the top. One may escape the 5.9 crux traverse by continuing straight up, but then you'd be missing out on the best part of the route. Belay and rap as for Sail Away.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Standard rack to 2" with TCUs to protect thin traversing section towards the top.
