BETA PHOTO: Looking straight at the wide crack; Goo ...
Quite lichenous, but nevertheless a good route.
Begin the wider-than-fists crack utilizing features on the face and in the crack to gain a short section of decent fists that tapers to hand jams, then to thin hands, and arches right, facilitating the transition to a layback. Solid jamming and good rock make this a worthwhile, if short, line.
Walking east beneath along The Ripple, take note of an alcove defined by pinkish granite in between right- and left-facing dihedrals. Just around the corner from these lines is a large, right-facing corner rising off a broken ledge; this is Crack a Goo Goo. An interesting looking, wider climb is just to the right.
If leading, one cam each from #0.75 Camalot to #4 will sew this line up. The opening moves begin on a ledge system, so a #4 cam is nice to have for the start. Toprope gear could be anything; boulders and trees are available to sling.
