Leading the first roof on Happy Crack.

Description 

Start with some straightforward stemming moves, then gain the wide crack. There are some huge holds on both dihedral faces, which keeps the climbing easier than it would first appear.

Pass through a small roof, then nice hand-size crack climbing, to one final roof move where you'll want a big #4 cam.

Location 

This is the wide crack in a right-facing dihedral about a quarter of the way across the 2nd band.

Protection 

Several big cams, up to #4. You can walk them up on the lower section, but save one for the top.
