Start on the right/low end of the crack on a juggy hold with a really good foot (yes a good foot at pawtuckaway, but dont get your hopes up for more)...

I think its V2 for tall folks and a little harder for shorter types... enjoy...

Is this on the same boulder as Barnyard Crack? Just on the opposite side?

Yes its on the same boulder, if you are facing Classic Crack then your back should be facing Ride The Lightning.
