BETA PHOTO: Off width crack to the right of Atropine.

Description 

Crack has some hand jams and each side has pockets and edges for easy hand and foot holds. The ledge you take exiting the crack can be muddy. There is little protection until you get from there to the tree.

Location 

This is the crack to the right of Atropine.

There is an easy walk-off to the left.

Protection 

Cams 3/4 - 3.

I think it is harder than 5.6 and deserves a PG-13 rating because the finish can be muddy or full of leaves or possibly ice in spring.

Consider previewing the finish and maybe dangle a line from a tree to give yourself something to clip instead of a tree root. Certainly do this if the ground is wet.
