A fantastic route that should be climbed more than it is. I've seen people enjoy onsighting this, other enjoy giving it a few goes, and I climb it every time I'm in the area. Good eye and good bolting, Jeff.
And thanks to the people who put the new bolts in. In the later days of the older bolts it was a bit of a sweat-and-shake horrorfest.

Anyone know anything about the crack to the right of this climb.

Jeff,

I am wondering the same thing. I just climbed the crack to the right today. Not a bad crack, but a loose block made it interesting. once i reached the dirt at the top, I traversed left to the anchors, as there are none on the crack. I would say it is maybe a 9+/10-.

Does anyone know the name? Has anyone else climbed it?

I don't think there's a name for the crack right of crank n go go but it's a fun one. My brother led the 10.d and it was a little over my head so I cheated up the crack. I agree with the guy above; 5.9+ or 5.10 (leaning towards the 5.10 I think). Maybe we should name it? Cheat n go go/ crack n go go/ crank n no go? Pretty sure I wasn't the first ascent since I climbed it last week but it should get a name. It's pretty fun (minus one of the flakes that's as sharp as a box cutter :)
