Description 

Obvious long offwidth on the left side of the wall. Start below and left of the offwidth crack at 15 foot chimney split on both sides. Travel over broken and chossy stuff up and traversing right around a corner. This first pitch is a traversing, chossy mess that is like 5.7. It's just to access the sweet crack above. Once at the crack you'll start having fun immediately, on mostly good rock. You will end up at a roomy alcove below top of wall. You may ascent cracks to top then scramble back to alcove through steep gulley. The offwidth section has good and interesting rock, worth the crappy first pitch.The last pitch is good rock with stemming and jugs everywhere. Rap the slung boulder then two more raps. straight down.

Protection 

Mostly larger gear. Full rack of cams and nuts with doubles on 3.5 through 5. triples #4 is better.

Safe and well protected. Very fun crack once you get into it, the start keeps it at 3 stars. Also, including the first choss pitch there were only 3 pitches total. Rap/Belay stations are in place as well.
