Description 

I felt the crack was a traditional 5.7 but others feel it is more like a nine. If you climb cracks, this one is a breeze and sucks up pro. The crux is mid way up and involves stemming smears, coupled with intermitten toe jams. Two bolts were placed at the top for rap anchors, or available to use for top rope.

Location 

Located just right of center of the crag exposure, 100 feet to the right of the obvious alcove cave structure.

Protection 

Cams and wedges work wonders
