Last time I climbed this route, there were fixed draws all over the wall. the leader can top out on the crack, climb up a bit, clip the fixed draw, traverse out left to another fixed draw, and lower. This avoids the heinous to reach anchor around the corner to the right.

Really too bad this route doesn't have a decent anchor of its own.

Elliott lowering after cleaning the Karate Crack.
This is the suggested way to rig the anchor on this crack, without lowering into that terrible corner system tot he right.
