Description 

This is a fun crack that has good hand and fist jams. The feet are not great, but there is a good rest foot hold in the middle of the climb. There is lots of lichen on the rock. At the top, the crack forces you to traverse to the cave below the crack on Leave My Monkey Alone. You could join this climb, but it is harder, 10c in difficulty. The hardest part seems to be about 3/4s of the way up near the start of the traverse.

Location 

This crack is on the left side of the crag to the left of Leave My Monkey Alone. The crack arcs left to right as it goes up. It ends in the cave where the crack portion of Leave My Monkey Alone is above. Either go to the back of the cave and exit the crag to the right or join Leave My Monkey Alone (which is called Fat Monkey's Birthday on this site).

Protection 

Standard rack with extra #1, #2, and #3 Camalots. Build a gear anchor at the top,
