Description 

This is the furthest back route on the East (right) side of the crack. This climb involves an interesting sidepull section that pulls you up to a large flat section, and then left of the bulge using sidepulls.

Experienced climbers will be able to climb this without pro, as there are no spectacularly balancy moves, and if you're going to fall, you can lean back into a chimney move on the opposite wall.

Protection 

Set up a toprope using small nuts and friends in the cracks above, or use long slings to equalize between the trees to the left side and the large rock on the right side of the top of the rock.
