Some context for the location.

Description 

The obvious short and overhanging crack located on the left when you walk into the Cut. Set a pad down underneath the top-out and step up onto the starting block.

Pull on to the crack using a low left finger-lock and a decent hold higher up. power through the harder thin section to massive jugs on the top, and be ready for a pretty scary top-out. Swing a heel over to a block on the left and push all your body weight up and towards it until you can grab a hold higher up on the ledge, or comfortably stand.

Starting this route is intimidating due to the weird blocky ramp, however the crack leans right and is overhanging enough so that falling off of anything but pulling on to the starting holds is relatively safe. I definitely would not want to blow it on the top-out though, as the fall would be long, backwards, and possibly onto some rocks.

Location 

Walk down into the cut, and start looking left. this appears to be the first climbable route in the cut on the left side. It is a right leaning crack.

Protection 

Pad or two and a good spotter. A helmet if you're into real safety.

You could definitely top rope this, and it might be more enjoyable that way.
