Description 

The right cheek sits directly to the right of Adam's crack and shares the start with Sweet Surprise and Scary. Climb the crack 9' to the left of the large fir tree growing out of the cliff following easy, but poorly protected ledges 50' to a good stance below a well-protected crux move. Traverse left below the small Maple at the top of the 5th class terrain on the Bare Buttress and finish at the same anchor as Adam's crack.

Protection 

Medium to large Hex placements and medium cams. Also, the crux is protected well by a blue alien and more specifically a #11 DMM Offset Nut (the black one). Also, if you think it's worth it, AND if you have a small black tricam AND you have your nut tool with you, you can dig out a small placement halfway up to the crux to protect the easier terrain. I'm not putting a bolt there though dammit!
