Description 

One of the best routes on the wall. It starts with fingers, moves to hands, then to an off-width fist/stack as it reaches the cruxy roof. Once you pass the roof there's a second crux with an awkward mantle, then smooth sailing. Watch for the massive loose block making up the right side of the crack just below the roof.

Location 

This is the large, right leaning crack halfway down the wall.

Protection 

Standard rack to #6 camalot. No anchors, but plenty of trees to sling at the top.
