Climb Description 

This is a fantastic line up a classic feature that resembles two of the ancient statues from the pacific Easter Island. You'll enjoy the jams and physical moves of the crux going out the roof. T

Start in a short corner (wild traverse 5.9). Once you get to a ledge system 20ft up traverse right to the easter overhang crack proper. This crack begin with perfect hands and widens up higher. Continue out the roof and pull the lip. Belay off of gear back in a flare.

Protection to #3.5 camalots. In order to prevent ropedrag on this long pitch it is recommended to backclean gear on the lower dihedral to the left.

Don't be scared off by the offwidth description in the Climbing washington book. There are actually a few holds that make it quite a bit easier than it looks. If I remember correctly, there is a good looking pin at the bulge.
