Description 

Start just right of Spacely Sprockets at an obvious right arching crack.
P1: Climb up an easy slab to reach the right arching crack. Follow the crack up and right to a belay near an arête (5.9+).
P2: Follow the crack right around the corner then up and right to the top of the formation (5.7+; V1).
V1: Instead of doing the 2nd pitch, climb the face above the P1 belay to the top (5.6+).

Location 

Start just right of Spacely Sprockets at an obvious right arching crack.

Descend by either downclimbing the gully just right of the 2nd pitch (easy 5th class) or walk out to the front of the formation and do one or two rappels from anchors.

Protection 

Carry a standard JT rack with some extra finger to thin hands cams.
