in the space between Black Jack Crack and the 5.8 to the right there is a face that is fairly thin with a couple of big holds to shake out on.

Warning: this line is a little contrived.
Start up on small edges moving toward a nice small ledge that you can easily relax on if you managed to get there. Bust out some more technical climbing through crimps and side pulls to a nice jug to the right (or skip the jug and keep the route stiff). Staying left of the easy top out for the adjacent route battle one last very thin section to gain the lip and the top out.

I climbed this one today after top roping Black Jack Crack. I'm sure I'm not the first to do it but I hadn't heard anything about it before. It's an obvious line it just unfortunately is a bit squeezed in. I figure if you go through the trouble of getting a rope up on Black Jack it's nice to know there is another climb you can get on with no extra rigging. It will be a nice confidence booster if you climb hart faces but get your ass kicked on the crack ;)


Just right of black jack crack and left of the 5.8.


Top rope, cam and nuts and a static line.
