S Crack location.

Description 

The route climbs the prominent S-crack located on an attractive prow above John Brown Road.

P1: climb finger cracks and then bust left up face holds to the anchor. 5.10, 80'.

P2: make a bolt traverse right (some choss) to gain a nice finger crack, which eventually turns to hands and gains a ledge. 5.11, 120'.

P3: the third pitch is unclimbed, and would tackle the obvious, S-shaped splitter above.

Descent: rappel with 2 ropes.

Protection 

Standard desert rack with extra .5/.75 for P2.
