Pull up and right through a blocky section and into the thin crack above. This continues straight up and then arches left. Follow the crack until it is possible to hand traverse left along a rail reaching a hand sized crack (#2 Camalot), climb this for a couple moves and move left onto a ledge with a fixed anchor. This climb is thin and sustained and excellent. It ends up being more of a face climb than a crack as the crack gets pretty small and there are some great edges on the face.
This gets two stars for rock and moves and pro, but it's short and the crack dies before becoming a classic. 70 feet is a guess. A 60 meter rope easily made the rappel from the anchor, a 50m probably would as well. Watch the dead tree when tossing your rope, it's a potential snag.
