The third crack right of Much Ado. This mostly hands crack gets more difficult until you get to the crux, about 3/4 of the way up. After this it eases up to the anchors.

Soft for 5.9. Really good climb for the aspiring 5.9 lower gorge leader. 5.4 for the first half, bomber gear, very straightforward.
