|Coat of Arms Corner and The Rat Cracks
This route goes up the center of the face to the right of Danger Mouse. It starts off with a nice finger crack which ends at a sloping ledge. After the ledge, it becomes more of a face climb (crux) with some small nut/RP placements in a decent crack. There may be one last placement before the topping out move after a runout.
Finger-sized pieces and some small nuts are all you need. Long sling/ rope to top rope off juniper tree.

I thought "Crack Sweat" was a crack climb -- at least we climbed the crack all the way to the top, with some decent jams. We used the bulging face on either side of the crack for feet along the way, but it was mostly a crack climb. Maybe I was on the wrong route....
