Description 

If someone else has climbed this, obviously let me know.
I saw this crack from above and it's hard to see from anywhere below at the trail or otherwise. We were not sure about it until we hiked up to it. On closer inspection it was much easier then what it looked from afar.
Called it Alfabeto - cause its as basic as the alphabet and Aaron was thinking about food as always...

Good intro trad crack.

Location 

Located on the west end of the Spaghetti Area, near what looks like sliced bread boulders. It is a short crack on the South face. Start left traverse right. Traverse follows the sloping grade to the vertical crack.

Protection 

medium to large gear. Gear anchors. down climb right
