Description 

Up the right trending ramp to the moment of truth, very steeply up the crack to a butt ledge rest - the crux follows, a tenuous lieback to easier ground.

Location 

Two diagonal cracks form an A-Frame shape - this is the right crack.

Protection 

Toprope problem (or scary lead) - boulder and cams (bolts?)

Be sure to take two hangers and nuts for the 10 mm metric bolts on top

Can be protected using some medium passive pro and BD cams up to 1. Mainly using some smaller (.3-.5) cams to protect the layback.

I started climbing at Stoney Point in 1963, and this route has always been one of the all-time great TR climbs in the area. Back then there would be ropes hanging off this, Pothole Crack, Black Crack, Beethoven's all day long, every weekend. This route had a lot of theater due to the swing one would see in a fail. Athletic, cryptic and insecure, A-Frame always gets your attention, and there is a certain "3-D" nature to the movement and hold distribution.

I'm fairly certain that a lead fall from the lieback on small cams would be an equipment failure scenario. I've led the route and did not trust the small cams I placed at all.
