Description 

This route is a bit of a one-move wonder, but if Classic Crack is taken, it can be fun to do while waiting. The route is the curving crack around the corner from Classic Crack. The crux is pretty obvious. It is also a little tricky to protect. The rest is easy.

Protection 

Standard trad rack. Don't need to carry much since the route is quite short. Bolted anchors that are shared with Mickey Mantle.

Definitely harder than it looks.

The diagonal crack portion takes good medium cams, and is the only 5.9 move on the route.
