Comments: I agree wholeheartedly with the description. Nice beginner trad lead, right up there with yellow pages in East-A.

The handcrack is really fun (I placed one BD #0.75, one #1, and one #3, all in that order, IIRC). After that, there are two rest stops (ledges), where you advance up the rest of the crack through small overhangs to a two-bolt anchor. Not nearly as hard as the left X, so I would rate it 5.6.

Comments: Definitely a worthwhile little crack, a good moderate lead to sharpen your skills in placing gear in an underclinging stance. I used two BD #3s and one BD #0.75 for "the arch." The rest of the climb is super dusty with tons of loose rock with hardy any gear placement (except for slinging a tree). There's a two bolt anchor at the top. Overall it was pretty fun. Recommended.
