    Are you referring to the corner left of the "A-Crack" formation? If so, this is a fun, little outing with a thoughtful offwidth "move" at near the top. A #4 Camalot helps keep you off the ledge if you happen to fall.

    Yeah, I think that's it. I got the name from the old climbing magazine topo.

    The first section is straightfoward at 5.6

    Once you gain the ledge, the off-width piece might go at 5.7/8, it takes a little bit of gusto.

    2 bolts with rap rings at the top.
