Description 

Climb the left facing corner on the right-most side of the ledge up to a stance. Continue up the crack system through a short but steep crux and catch your breath below a right facing corner. A few more easier moves gets you to a good belay ledge with a two bolt anchor. With some more traffic could clean up nice.

The original FA party continued through scary loose blocks to the top of the cliff as Oliver ran out of cams to build a belay. Luckily, we had a bolt gun handy and added the belay at the ledge to avoid forcing others into a similar fate.

Location 

Locate the giant 20 foot cave home to Moose's Tooth and Give a Dog a Bone. To access the climb either climb one of the two roof cracks or locate the 5.5/5.6 slab approach on the left end of the cave. Work up on to the giant ledge and start in the corner on a ledge with a small tree. The start is the same as for Skeleton Crack. Instead of working up the corner, traverse the beautiful undercling left.
