Description 

LIGHTNING BOLT CRACK 5.6 R * 105’ G/TR
The prominent jagged crack on the shaded face left of center on the South face with 2 chain anchors just below the top. As a gear route this is scary with the 5.6 crux unprotected (stepping up through the small roof). Will be better with a couple of bolts. The cracks below (up to 5.3), and above (up to 5.5) are delightful and easy to protect.

Location 

In the middle section of Turtle Island, begin from the base about 50' down and left of the upper main wall ledge.

Protection 

gear or best to toprope until some bolts are added.
