Description 

Offwidth crack with a small roof about 1/3 of the way up. Pull the roof on decent face holds, then jam or lieback the crack as the angle eases. Top is a bit loose, but easy. Just don't kick rocks down on your belayer. A fun climb that can be done with little to no jamming technique. So-so rock quality.

Location 

The obvious wide crack in a corner at the left end of the Benny Silva Wall. Walk off.

Protection 

Trad gear all the way to the top. It's wide, so bring the big cams. #4 Friend is the smallest piece you'll be able to use till high up on the route. There is no anchor at the top, but it's easy to build one with 1.0-1.5 inch pieces.
