Layback fun, just before the crux.

Description 

The left facing corner crack right of Sharktooth Flake and The Matrix. Start easily up the corner. Climb a wide section then layback where the crack thins down. At the top, which is quite dirty, move out of the crack via faceholds on the right wall.

Location 

Gear to 3"

Protection 

Rap from slings and rap rings around the big tree up and right of the topout.

Cleaned this route. Feels like 5.8. Also, added anchors to the top. Really fun climb!
A standard rack protects it well.
