Cave Crack.

Description 

Begins at an obvious crack to the right of the cave, starts off as a wide (fist sized) crack for the first fifteen or twenty feet with some thought provoking moves. Climb up to a large ledge and move right through a flake/crack feature onto the main face, climb easier ground to a large tree at the top which can be slung to top-rope off of. Walk off to the right

Protection 

Standard trad rack, protects well...good route for beginners...no fixed gear or anchors

Hand crack into an off-width. The crack will spit you out when it is time to exit. Don't exit too early. Challenging climb.

Pretty nice climb for the grade. Legit challenge calling for a variety of moves, and of course, per Bald standards, unparalleled rock quality.
