Description

This route ascends the largest flake system in the middle of the front of The Crack House. There is also a large bush set about 50 feet off the ground that you will have to contend with when you get to it. There are several techniques that will get you up this strenuous route, however none are pretty.

Protection

Bring BIG pro (up to 5") for protection.

To set up a top-rope, you can walk around the right side to the back side of the rock. There are several trees that can be used to set up a top rope, bring a short sling (3') and a longer sling (10') for a backup. Beware that this approach to set up a top rope is at best awful and slippery, at worst a 40 foot tumble down the steep leafy hillside.
