DescriptionA great little route on good rock and good moves. The name is derived from the difference between initial appearances and reality- the "crack" I thought I saw was not much of one.
Climb up onto the wall below and right of the 3 small trees growing beside each other about 60 feet up. Climb into a short, shallow, left-facing corner (with a seam, not a crack), place a 2" cam at the base of it, and execute the crux sequence up it (5.8). Climb up and left, traversing above each tree to reach a clean face and crack system on the left side of a great face. Climb this past a runout (5.4) to a large ledge, and belay off of a huge stone dolmen behind the edge on a cordalette. 3" gear in a crack in the ledge can back this up if desired.
To descend, scramble from the ledge to the summit, and descend the standard route, or walk off North from this ledge.
