Description 

Stem between the two cracks just right of the large roof. The crux is near the top, where it steepens and the right crack widens.

Location 

Twin hand cracks just left of Scandanavian Airlines. (If you get to a bolted route on the approach, you've gone too far.) Starts just right of a big roof about 6' up.

Protection 

Standard rack of nuts and cams up to 3". Bigger cams may be useful at the OW pod at the top but other gear also works. Traverse right at the top to get to the Scandanavian Airlines anchors. Use a directional placement at the top of the crack, if setting it for a follower.

Nice climb. Easier if you use both cracks. The right-hand crack gets nice and wide up at the top. May sketch out some to traverse right to the anchors, but it's really not bad at all.
