Right hand and foot in crack, left using face hold...

Description 

Choose your start (5.4 starter crack, Cal's Ceiling, or the boulder start) then once at the ledge climb up to and use the splitter crack directly left of Calvins Corner.

Follow the splitter to its end at a ledge with a tree (can't miss it) then traverse a short distance to finish on the last few feet of Calvins Corner.

Can be done in one or two pitches. No need for two but it'd be fun/good practice. Climb to the big ledge and belay second up or climb until you get to the bottom of the splitter proper and create a gear anchor using Calvins Corner and belay the second up.

Location 

Immediately left of Calvins Corner. Its the obvious splitter.

Protection 

Standard rack. This route you can sew up.
