BETA PHOTO: Louie's Lunch Box, Crystal Palace

Description 

Start matched low on the left side of the crack with a foot jam/cam. Fire up to the crimps on the right side of the crack, moving up until you can reach the holds on the face above you. Make a few tricky moves on less-than-ideal holds to top out just to the right of the end of the crack. The block to the left can be used as a foot at this point (grade unchanged). Also, be aware that while a lot of choss was pulled off in the cleaning (and climbing) process, there is likely still to be some chossy footholds towards the top of the climb.

Location 

Obvious large roof crack set back and up a bit, before you turn the corner to get to Prince and Pauper.

Protection 

Multiple pads and spotters. Falls from the upper face will require careful spotting.
