Just right of Spring into Action is a thin crack. Similar to it's brother, steep but with odd ledges. The difference is, the crack needs to be utilized, and less jugs and more liebacking. Again, a good climb just way too short.


2 draws for the anchors which are shared with Spring into Action. one small SLCD, and 2 small nuts would protect this crack acceptably.

This route is barely above a bomb, not one I'm inclined to revisit. The approach is steep and loose, with thorn bushes on either side. The crack is reluctant to take pro, so run-out is a consideration. It's only redeeming quality is about five feet of interesting laybacking off a thin side pull. Beware of rapping/lowering into the trees.
