DescriptionMark Sprague told me about this crack a while back after he put in an anchor above it and tried it a little on TR. Anyway the beta I had in mind took a good bit of cleaning of lichen and loose rocks. Today I went out to give it my first try. I came very close to an onsight on my first go, falling on the #6 cam in the crux. I cleaned the route and sent on my second go.
Basically climb the low off-width roof how ever you can manage (I went upside down but who knows what you might come up with) and continue up the chimney above to the anchor.

Im not sure on a letter grade but the "boulder problem" crux i felt was v4 or harder so it seemed like 5.12 made sense. I'd love other peoples opinions on the grade so climb it.
Thanks a bunch for telling me about it Mark.
