Description 

This is the crack to the right of Tiberone. Start in right-angling crack that soon joins the main line. As you get higher, the protection gets a little more difficult to find, but the holds get bigger. This is a very enjoyable crack, and it shouldn't be missed if you are in the area.

Location 

Do the first pitch of Barnacle to reach the ledge where this climb starts.

Protection 

Single set of cams, wires, 60m rope. Two bolt anchor on top of route.

Solid 5.9. Having 2 #3 Camalots would have been nice, but the upper middle section does have a couple of hidden cracks for small Aliens or the like.
