Description 

The crux on this is about thirty feet up. You can't get any protection till about twenty feet up (a small cam). There is not much protection till near the top. This is a better top-rope climb than a lead climb. It has a few ledges near the top, but it is certainly a slab in the beginning.

Location 

This route is about ten feet to the right of Number 5 Crack. It follows a thin seam which looks a bit like a crack.

Walk off to the south (right) from the top.

Protection 

Standard rack. Anchor to a tree at the top.

From base to rim, this route is about 120 feet long. It felt like 5.9 to me. The tree is another 10 feet back from the rim.
