Just before the final wide section.

Description 

This is the right crack in the corner right of "Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing." Despite the crummy appearance, this route has good, quality climbing.

A dirty, marginal hand crack leads to a ledge where a cave is located. Take the right corner though a short squeeze chimney (small pro in the back) through a series of roofs. Surmount the final wide section, and follow tight hands to the top.

Protection 

Single rack up to BD #3. An extra 0.75 is handy and a #6 is extremely reassuring for the upper wide spot. I didn't use a 4 or 5.
