Wet Crack during dry conditions.

Description 

This ascends the grungy looking crack that is the first line left of the low prow. The upper 10' of this crack (crux) is steeper than it appears, and the crack is a bit slick (i.e., likely slow drying) for hand placements. Stay off the lower block to the left for more of a challenge.

Location 

It is the first route to the (climber's) left of the low prow. Sharp, fin-like rock is at the bottom of the route. Look for the continuous hand crack that runs up the short, vertical face.

Protection 

Small stopper at start, a small cam down low (~0.5"), and a few 1.5 - 2.5" cams up top. Watch out for suspect rock at upper section, and don't fall on the sharp rock below.
