BETA PHOTO: Closer view of the crack.

Description 

Right-leaning crack with some sustained and flared hands to fists jamming which requires going deep for solidity. The angle coupled with poor to non existent grainy footholds on the right face needing clean up from ascents make this climb that much more physical.

Location 

Walk off and scramble just to the right.

Protection 

Crack gradually widens from .75 to 4 at the top.

A bit more enjoyable than it looks. Sustained with good jamming. Too bad it's not longer. Short descent.
