Climb the obvious thin crack (5.8+, the crux of the route) that is just to the right of the starting bolts on A Route Runs Through It. It is possible to place nuts and TCUs or to reach left and to clip bolts. When you reach the break, climb the left-leaning crack through the bulge. Once on the ledge atop the overhanging section, move 8 feet left and then follow the steep, crescent-shaped crack up and then right. From the top of the crack head straight up clipping the last two bolts of A Route Runs Through It.


Immediately right of the start of A Route Runs Through It. See topo.


Gear from tiny to 3", bolts.

This is a much more natural and enjoyable line than the original line for The Crescent. This is also one of the most sustained and interesting moderate routes in all of Santa Barbara. Jul 13, 2010
