Description

Toward the right side of the 3rd Pinnacle above The Amphitheatre you will see a large hunk of rock leaning [against] the face, and a [tree growing] out of the rock just about that. This is right of the distinguished "[triple] cracks" of Trident. Climb the flake and past the tree to reach a crack that goes up though a few steep moves and to the top of the rock. I have not placed gear in this, but it appears that it would protect on a set of large cams and hexes, maybe with a few stoppers. Despite its name, it is not a particularly wide crack, and will require no pro above fist-sized.

Protection

A set of cams and nuts.

The girl in the pic looks to me to be a few feet right of the "Wide Crack" route. I did it by going up to the lower tree and turning an overhang (stout 5.4) and getting established in a crack with nice hand jams for a few moves to another tree above which the angle lessened to a nice finish at a slot of sorts on top.
