Description 

Start to left of crack, join the crack and up it (or to its right) to the top.

Variation: Direct start in crack up overhang (5.7+)

Location 

Wide crack with large chockstone midway up, and overhang at bottom. About ten feet right of Hi E crack and ten feet left of tree-growing crack.

Protection 

Top-Rope likely requires very long static line to reach big rock (no trees anywhere top of wall, and not much trad gear possibilities near top of route).

Protection for trad Leading is unknown.

Thoughtful interesting moves the whole way. Completely different from indoor climbing. If only this route were longer.
