Description 

Another Rawdon route that he "said" was 5.xx, but was actually much harder. He told me after the fact that, perhaps, it's a bit reachy.

Location 

Start on the right wall of the crevice, on top of the first large "boulder". Climb discontinuous finger crack to the top. The wall "behind" you is off.

Protection 

Looks scarce, but available. No bolts at the top, but you can put gear in a crack at the top as a directional and run the main anchor off the Yellow Wallpaper bolts.

The crack ends at an overhang just a few feet below the top. You'll need to jog left or right to finish. Going right is significantly easier. And I don't really think there's any height-dependent difficulty on this climb.
