Starting the climb.

Description 

This is a high quality crack route. Despite the precarious look of the large block in the roof, it isn't moving. It took several sledgy hits, and it didn't budge. We cleaned lots of the loose rocks out of the crack.

Start up an overhanging hand crack in a dihedral. This is fun. The crack then widens to a no hands rest in a pod under the roof. Take a breath, and traverse left out of the roof to a wide crack that narrows to tight hands to the top. Fantastic.

Protection 

BD #0.4-3 C4s. You can bring an optional #4 for down low and an optional #5 for the top. Bring 100 feet of webbing for an anchor at a tree 50 feet back or a few extra #1s for a gear anchor at the lip.
