Getting established in the wide crack.

Description 

This is a fun and varied line. Tackle a small roof using a combination of handholds around a broken finger crack and sandy but decent feet. Depending on your strengths/weaknesses, getting established in the crack above may be the crux. Work up until you can jam a fist and pull up into the wide crack. Use fist jams and offwidth techniques to work up the less than vertical crack to the anchor. This may be the crux if you lack offwidth skills.

I have guessed at the route's difficulty. Please add any info you have about name, grade, and FA.

Location 

This ascends the obvious, wide crack a bit right of TH Crack. The top anchor is visible from the ground.

Protection 

The roof section protects with finger-sized cams. The crack above takes #3 to #5 Camalots. There is a good bolt and piton top anchor.
