John facing the crux of Divergent Crack

Look for a wall below the weakness in the upper face. Follow the crack as it goes up and to the right.

Fifth route as you come around the corner from the West Bluff trail (break from the trail left 125 yards south of the north end of West Bluff Trail).

I got sucked into the left finish on the on sight lead of this. Later on the TR it became more then evident that sticking to the crack proper is where this climb gets its rating. Great little butt kicker move at the top.... feet are an issue..

This crux is a thinker. Gotta move quickly through it less your feet blow and send you into the tree!
