Description Suggest change

This is a strange, non-uniform crack with some funky moves. Head up the first bit (the crux) to an easy ledge stance, then up the remaining part of the crack, where the crack edges become quite sharp.

Small loose rocks lie near the top, so be cautious.

One can walk up to the top via some class 3 rock on the far right.

Note: This route was previously called "Call Your Doctor" until I talked with Keith about it and he filled me in on the name he gave it back in the day.

Location Suggest change

Approximate coords: 34.31822°N / 117.84911°W

This route lies just around the corner from Ace Dick. It is easy to spot on the way up by the graffiti on the wall near the ground. This route takes the crack just to the right of the graffiti.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack to 4" or less. I used hexes. The placements are rather odd as the rock's not real good. A tree serves as the anchor on top. Use a LONG cord or webbing anchor to TR this climb in order to avoid as much loose rock as possible.
