Description [Suggest Change]

Follow the obvious crack on the slab where there is a splitter about 15 feet up. The splitter is the crux most definitely. Laybacks and friction on your feet are a must to get solid progression through. After the splitter, there are solid hands and feet the rest of the way the slab. There is a two bolt anchor up top just below a tree.

Location [Suggest Change]

The route is on the upper area of Morning Glory. Once you arrive at the lower area of Morning Glory, you will see an obvious trail leading up to the middle and upper areas. Once you get to the upper area you'll see a lonely rock on the east side of the little trail just at the base of the crag. If you stand in front of the rock and look at the wall, you will see a tree growing right up next to the slab. To the left of the tree, you will see the bulge, which makes up part of the splitter on the route. Another dead giveaway is that everything is bolted with the exception of two routes...this one and Old Trad Crack (5.9).

Protection [Suggest Change]

Take a small rack up to #2. There is a great little crack up top where you can place a #12 nut, just before you top out.
