Flight of the Centurion is the lieback crack betwe...

Description 

A thin finger crack / undercling / lieback leads you around and up this smooth granite block. Features on the face make it easier than it looks. Note that it is difficult to see your placements when leading. Continue on up past flakes and onto the face to the anchor at the apex. Easy to TR from apex anchor (you can lead Slick Rock Cracks to get to anchor).

Location 

Start in an alcove at the end of the ledge that Crystal Crescent starts on.

On the topo image found under "Nap Wall Area", this is climb number 4.

Watch rope drag on this one, I wish I had directed my rope to go up and over the hunk of rock you lie back on rather than having it follow the crack. Hind sight was 20/20 once I had to pull out heaps of slack before traversing the slab to the anchor. Great route!
