This short but fun crack ascends the right-most portion of the upper cliff above Devil's Slide. It is mostly a hand crack with a fun section where you transfer from one crack to another. The start looks runout to get to the base of the crack, but good pro can be found behind a flake at the base of the route. If you are looking for an easily approachable climb on Old Stage, hit this up! You can see it from the road.


Find this route by either climbing the lower pitches of Devil's Slide or hiking up a gully to the left of the lower slab. There is some loose rock at the base and not much of a belay stance.


Goes on gear, with an assortment of cams/nuts. The route tops out on a little pinnacle which is slung with webbing and some 'biners to bail off of.
