Description 

This is the obvious and excellent crack on the right side of Bob's Rock. The pro for the first ~15' is poor/nil because of the flaring cracks. After the small ledge, the crack is a perfect vertical to overhanging hand crack. The rock takes good pro and the fall is safe. Definitely a good place to push yourself if it is at your limit.


Protection 

A set of nuts, hexes. Cams from tips to fist, possibly doubles in hand sizes. A 50m rope will get you down.

The cold shuts were replaced with bomber new anchors.

A single set of Camalots from .3-3 and sm/med nuts protect this route adequately.

A guy at the crag told me that the diheadral a few feet right of Bob's was Air Soles, and better than Bob's. Although he was trying to help, that's not true. It's some other 5.9ish route. For the unknown route, take microcams and micronuts for that thin dihedral or run it out from the bolt. Okay but not great. Should have just climbed Bob's Crack.
