BETA PHOTO: Great Beginnings crack

Description 

Start up some easy rock to the base of the left to right trending crack/flake system. Some cruxy moves on small feet take you to easier climbing up the corner. A direct variation is possible up the steep, chalked up seam that leads into the same corner.

Location 

Another one that's easy to find from the top of the cliff. Look for the obvious gully at the top that splits the cliff in two. From below look for the left to right trending flake that leads to a big right facing corner.

Protection 

Easy to rig as a TR. If you lead it, take a single set from fingers to 4 camalot, and some nuts.
