Description 

Excellent wide crack moves, somewhat hard for the grade; call it 6+.
Climb the wide crack, which has a difficult start, to a ledge 8' below the top of the cliff, then scramble the last few easy feet up.

Location 

This route lies about midway along the Ledge, and is the obvious full-length wide hands/fist crack.

Protection 

Standard Adk Rack, with an emphasis on medium to largish cams. May want to double up the #2 and #3 C4 size.

Book says the mantle is the crux, but group consensus today was that the first few moves were the hardest part. No problem with the mantle at all. Nice route with great pro - def. want the double 2s and 3s, and a 4 plugged well overhead gave me a warm feeling on the opening.
