Description 

The initial OH move is hard, particularly if your footwork is below par, but a #2 C4 provides bomber pro. Once ensconced on the ramp, ride it up to a ledge with an oak tree. Heady friction moves lead up the slab beyond, then head diagonally up and right to a horizontal below the final steep headwall. Climb up knobs and head right to an arête, thankfully protected by 3 bolts to get you to the top. Last move is dicey!
This route tops out right below the 3rd class scramble to the Jammer Wall; a good link-up is to head directly to Firecracker there and continue climbing.

Location 

The short vertical hand crack toward the right side of the Provando Wall, which bottoms out at an overhang and ends within 2m at a right-rising ramp.

Protection 

Standard Trad Rack. There are a few bolts en route.
