Anthony past the crux on Cherokee

Description 

Climb up and right to the shallow open book. Move up to good holds (crux)and a decent stance. Diagonal right to a right-leaning fault and at its top, climb past reddish rock to a large block. Go straight from there to the pine tree on top of the buttress.


Location 

After Easter Time Too, walk left approximately 300 feet or so. Look for a large, orange-colored, right-facing corner; this is the start of Animal Farm. Cherokee is left and down the hill from very large Animal Farm block/corner.


Protection 

Tiny cams such as Metolius OO and 0 are needed to protect the crux. Otherwise, a standard 'Gunks rack will suffice.

Great Route. Well protected and gives full value. Finishes through a nice roof for some final excitement.

I thought the crux is protecting the crux without eliminating the key hold...

Found the crux to be rather difficult for a shorty. Has the potential to be a real tendon buster.
