BETA PHOTO: Basic Bubba Crack (5.9)

Description 

Harder than it looks.

Jam and stem right-facing dihedral. Move left around small roof to gain face and crack (crux 1). Climb undulating handcrack into awkward slot (crux 2) below pie-shaped roof. Top out to the left and move to anchors atop adjacent sport-route (Eight Ball...).

Location 

From main trail, descend wooden ladders. Stay left to go to Bubba Buttress. Follow trail along wall/face past several sport routes (Harmonic Jello 5.12c, etc...) to a deep right-facing dihedral and handcrack near a tree. BBC starts here.

Protection 

Hands (and larger if you want). You'll want several #2 to #4 BD cams and maybe a big hex. No anchors. Move left to anchors atop Eight Ball.
