This is the crack system to the right of "Call of the West". If I remember well, it's tricky getting started. You might want a spot. The upper crack is the crux. I don't think it's more than 5.8. Pro is good; be aggressive.

fun roof, with two dicey starts to choose from. the direct start (leftmost) does have a decent micro cam placement to help protect, after brushing away the grit and sand inside that tiny horizontal crevice
