Description 

This is the obvious short hand crack on your left when you begin the descent down to the base of the Summit Wall. With perfect hand jams and earlier sun exposure than the rest of the crag, this is a nice warm up.

Location 

Walk off.

Protection 

The crack takes #2 and #3 BD cams, and a medium sized hex at the top. About 10 feet after topping out there's a crack on the ground that takes numerous protection if you'd like to build an anchor to belay your partner up. You may want your partner to tie into the rope with a bight so you don't have to pull all the rope up.
