A classic for the area. A fun crack climb, although face holds exist as well. Follow the finger crack up into a dihedral and continue to the top.
This route is in the next corner down from Phantom Crack, and about 25 yards to the left from the stone lookout.
Nuts, cams, hexes for lead. Some large gear might be helpful for the top rope setup.

Plenty of pro and great jams. Long route so save a little pro (and energy for the top). Classic Route!
Climbed it with a storm approaching, 40 mph winds, whitecaps misting us from below, and a double rainbow forming behind us. One of my favorite climbing memories.
