Description 

Start in a short right facing corner with a bouldery move over a small bulge up to the crack proper. Climb the crack up on perfect jams to a bulge (crux). Step right to slab then up on small knobs with no gear until reaching another crack (5.3R). Continue up on easy slab and over a small overlap. Finish straight up past a strange pull-up bar protrusion in the rock (try to resist actually doing a pull-up as it's fragile). Gear anchor in horizontal cracks above (pink/red tricams, .4-.75 cams)

Note: The 5.7 climbing is G rated but there is a 5.3R runout so I've listed the route as PG-13.

Location 

Left of Mox Me at an 8' high right facing corner below an obvious clean finger crack.

Protection 

Standard ADK rack, doubles of .4-.75 could come in handy
