|Crack looks interesting when viewed from far away. Up close it's kinda crappy and very flared. Gear placements looked poor. Scoped it out, decided not to lead it, glad I didn't. I don't like cams in flares. Maybe small nuts would work. Ok climbing, felt secure but you climb on face and flakes more than in the crack. I would not climb this route again there are better sport routes on rope de dope and trad routes across the river.|

From afar this looks like a stellar crack.
Up close it, the crack is there but not as "Indian creek" splitter as you would think.
Climbs fast with plenty of rests and supplemental face holds if you desire. This would be a good climb for new leaders due to the rest potential.
Plenty of natural constrictions from nuts.
