Description 

The first part is wide, up to #5 and the end is overhung tight fingers. Both difficult patches; I got a sit down rest at top of wide crack.

Location 

This is the left of two prominent cracks in center of wall. It has an obvious finger crack shooting up and right to top.

Protection 

Several finger cams, single cams to #5.

I believe the upper fingers section will go free at hard 5.11 to easy 5.12. It protects well, jams are good but the feet are small smeary and overhung. Go get it!
