DescriptionLong, varied and quite fun. Head straight up the thinner crack (that gives you gear options where you want them) to the small scrub oak.
Climb through the steeper pod past the tree and continue on through an easing section, aiming for the notch roof. The crux is getting over the roof. A little reachy and steep, but you can slot a good finger piece or two that will ease the mind. Finish the crack straight up, or for more value, take the diagonal crack left and finish with the nice "Off to Work" finger section. (Minimize rope drag with slings---it'll be a fight if you're only using draws, and make sure you're using a 60m rope. Very much worth the effort.)
Use the good oak tree 20' back from the top, along with a #4 in the crack for your anchor, or build your one in the finger crack just below the edge. Walking off to climber's left and down the gully can sometimes be faster than rapping.
