Description 

Probably as good as Ooga-Chocka. If it was easier to get to, it would be on everyone's list of trad leads at Crowder's. Very boulder start. Solid nut placements protect opening moves, and can be placed by stemming off the adjacent boulder.


Location 

It's the obvious crack that splits the center of the wall


Protection 

Up to a #2 Camalot.

Just to let people know, Beer Can Alley is not on the car wall. It's on a wall across from it. This was a misprint in the book that was never corrected. The climbs on Car Wall from left to right,

Wes Love and Doug Reed did 1st ascent. I did all the topo's and discriptions for the Thomas Kelley guides.( Crowders section ). The publisher made a few mistakes, that was one of them.
