Start out slabby rock to gain your first placement in a crack. Follow this through a wash next to some oak tree branches to gain unprotected face climbing on good holds for about 20 feet. Then you reach the crack for which the route is named. The crux is right in the beginning of this crack when it is a little bulgy but it soon opens up to perfect cupped hands for about 25 feet until the summit. There are holds outside the crack too so lots of variation to be done.
You can reach this route by climbing Corn Snake and bushwhacking through the gully on top to reach the start of the climb. Pretty easy, only about 42 feet from the summit boulder of Corn Snake.
There is a rap anchor on top slung around the Oak Tree perched above.
