Mid-route belay. Pitch 2 above Nate's head.

Description 

This is pretty much the central line up the longest and steepest section on the cliff. Two pitches of great crack climbing. Pitch 2 was a little dirty, but not bad at all.

This is the only route we did on the crag that I felt like might have been climbed before. Maybe just because it's such a proud, obvious line. I'd love to hear about any previous activity / ascents up here.

Location 

In the center of the cliff is a steep, left-facing corner, starting 100' off the ground, that goes through three roofs. This is pitch 2. Pitch 1 climbs the right-most crack in the slab beneath this corner, pulling the left side of a hanging dagger / overlap 30' up. This crack leads to a low-angle chimney that dumps you out on a slab beneath the very obvious, cracked overhang. Belay on this slab. Pitch 2 climbs the left-most crack through the overhang and the steep corner above. We stepped out left before the top-most roof but, with big cams, you could pull this hard-looking offwidth roof crack as the finale.

Walk / scramble off to the East.

Protection 

Standard rack with doubles in hand and fist-sized pieces. 5-6 inch piece if you want to try the top roof. No bolts, no fixed gear, no anchors.
