Description 

Climb directly up the crack with good solid finger jams directly up to gain a good rest 15 below the cave. The next section up to the roof is the technical crux.

On increasingly difficult finger jams make progress until possible to grab the good lip on the cave.

From here standup, and climb the sandy cave until a difficult move at the roof allows you to dynamically get established on the head wall above the cave. The finishing moves are easier, but they feel decidedly airy, as you make your way directly to the top.

Location 

Middle of the wall below 'the keyhole'.

Protection 

Trad gear.
