An apparently wide crack, but few true wide crack skills are needed because of plentiful face holds. Start at a single bolt belay on the ledge. Climb a left-facing corner that leans back to become a right-trending ramp. Near the top of the ramp, pull a small roof and move left on a ledge to gain a diagonal offwidth. Laybacky underclingy moves with face holds out left lead to a vertical chimney type feature with finger and hand cracks in the back and good stemming, and eventually the anchor.


Chain station; 50m rappel back to the base or hike up across the ledge on top to This Is Your Brain and climb a route there.


Full rack from small-med wire nuts up to #4 Camalot.
