Description 

Classic (for the area) splitter that goes from fingers, to thin hands, to hands then is fist and/or offwidth(y) above the horizontal.

You can climb the fingers to hands crack to the horizontal then instead of continuing onto the fist/offwidth above, crawl (an average size human can fit) through the passage/tunnel and build an anchor. Just an option.

Location 

Second full length splitter on the main wall.

Protection 

standard rack + optional #4 cam for above the horizontal

maybe some contributors to MountainProject call this crack "Pebbles"?
But others reserve that word for the route on the face to its left.

A bit hard if you are an east coast climber without much crack experience. Good climb!
