Description 

If FOS was climbing here years ago, this obvious route was likely the first that they climbed...

Duh Crack climbing above where the trail comes up to the crag. Good jams, thin mini crux, grand tradition.

Location 

Scramble up to a ledge below a obvious thin hands splitter. Climb up into varied dihedral.

Just to the right of 'Debra'

Once up the obvious splitter, does the route go left into that wide looking pod? Is there any large gear needed for that part?

There is a 'wider-ish' pod near the top but it doesn't warrant bringing big cams all the way up there. Standard rack and some nuts should do it for ya. If you do bring something big take it down to Dream Signals and stuff some wider cams!!

For the not so solid 5.10 climbers the MP gear list is a little off. I found myself doing a lot of back cleaning and pulling hard-for-me moves/hanging with a single piece between me and broken ankles. If you, like me, are of weak fingers and mind I would suggest 2X #3 camalot at a minimum.

If you want a sew-it-up gear list here goes: 1X finger sized piece (I used an orange mastercam), 1X #1 camalot, 2-3X #2 and #3 camalot each. It looks like you could probably put a smaller nut in at the crux but it'd be pretty strenuous. Smaller and larger cams are unnecessary as the crack is #2 and #3 sized anywhere you want gear (including in the OW).
