This is the prominent crack on the mid-left side of the upper tier. Crux is an interesting section about 25 feet off the ground. Remember to look to your right for additional hands and feet!
Keep in mind that you're leading sandstone before running out your protection.
[NOTE TO ADMIN: taking out the part about the tree - tree is gone now]
The lower half of the crack takes cams up to 5 inches (so borrow your friend-who-climbs-in-Yosemite's #5 camalot). The upper half is easy but unprotectable.
There are two bolts for top-roping. These can be accessed on foot at the top of the crack (scoot down on your butt for extra safety). You'll need to extend the anchor by about 5 feet in order to prevent scarring the rock with your rope.
