Climb the crack for about 12 feet, traverse left (do Not go to the end of the crack) and continue up the weakness. Belay just after a short wide section. Continue up, generally left, to a large ledge and belay.

Edmund Ward climbed an exciting 5.9 variation to the right. Cross a substantial ledge and traverse right to a shallow corner. Go up the corner, step left and protect a small roof. Continue to the large ledge at the top of In the Pocket.


The route shares a start with Kelly's Climb behind the oak tree. Descent is a walk off to the north.


Standard trad rack to three inches.
