This is a fine crack line (that starts a few feet off the ground) on the right side of the Lower Wall. I recall learning basics about crack technique, learning to lead, learning to solo on this same crack. It's so fun. It got 3 out of 3 stars in the old Boston Rocks. After all these years, it still brings back fond memories. Here is a nice shot from the MIT photo contest for your viewing pleasure.
This is on the right side of the Lower Walls.
Mostly 1-2" gear.

Nostalgia alert: this was my first climb and probably has been for many Boston climbers over the years. To my 13-year-old self, this wall seemed gigantic.

To those confused by the route description and not in possession of a Boston Rocks guide, this is the crack climb that starts about 6-8 feet off the ground, with a cool slabby start involving a (optional) mono pocket. The continuous splitter finger crack to the right is The Cleft (5.4). Fantastic climbs both.
