Lukasz Czyz on the FA of Kielbasy Posse, 5.10a Cra...

Description 

P1: Go over the chockstone, bridging the gap of the alcove. Take the vertical crack until it turns right and fades, then climb excellent face moves to a final crack near the top.
Climbing directly to this final crack is 5.10b, but good holds slightly right (basically veering into Leapin' Louie for the finish) tame the beast significantly.

Location 

Start: on the right side of an alcove between two opposing corners, below a large chockstone.
This is very close to the upper right end of the "useable" part of this cliff.

Protection 

A full set of C3s, a .7 and #3 C4, a runner or two, and two quickdraws. There is one bolt enroute.

There's two more routes and a variation not currently listed here, but of the 6.5 climbs this one IMHO is easily the best.

TR can be setup using the climber's path (right). Be carefully coming down to the top of the cliff (there's a rap anchor 5 feet up a tree). Directional off the smaller birch is helpful, otherwise clip the rope into the bolt.
