A forty foot crack with an incredible backdrop of the entire Ojai Valley. Nice finger sizes down low, larger and harder to protect up high.


Having completed the approach and standing at Couch Rock, head left and hike past the other towers on the ridge. When the downhill begins to become uphill, drop below the ridge on the side facing the valley. Continue back in the direction of Couch Rock, but now you should be traversing the base of the ridge's formations. Shortly, you will arrive at the 40 foot high, left leaning crack.
