BETA PHOTO: Crux at the start

Description 

A fun and diverse crack on the left side of a face. Begin climbing a 10 foot hand crack to a shallow dihedral. Fun and easy to protect, this route eases off as you work your way higher. Fun movement with nice rests.

Location 

Right of Monkey Bumps and just left of Rampage. Look for a short hand crack at the start.

Protection 

A single rack of cams up to a #5 camalot.

Very very clean cracks and a bunch of surprisingly physical moves. The width, as is often the case, can be bypassed easily using face holds. Again, placing a #5 and not having to climb the vile size of crack it comes with is very satisfying.
