Left side of Commonwealth, centred on It's Not Eas...

Description 

The crag's sole mixed route, start up a fun finger crack to the very restful alcove then move onto the face above. Pass two bolts on thin, cruxy moves, punch it through 20 more feet with decent, but spacey protection to a short and very fun horizontal crack to top out.

Location 

look for the bolts. Below them is a big, square, alcove. Start at the base of the crack which leads to the left side of the alcove

Protection 

standard rack to 3" (only one large placement at the top) and two bolts. The first bolt can be clipped from a comfortable position if you're tall, shorter climbers will need to move into more insecure terrain to reach it. There are few placements possible between the bolts and the upper horizontal crack and I didn't find them particularly confidence-inspiring.
