|This is a really fun although super thin crack that can't be jammed unless your fingers are shoelace thickness. It is more of a gear protected face climb than a crack climb but really fun nonetheless.|

|I'd call it a pseudo-crack, hee hee|

There are some finger jams or tips-jams with long reaches between them. You'll be worked if you don't have the reach and if your slab footwork isn't in order. Also bring your brass nuts. Don't let that frighten you, though--it's a STELLAR pitch!
PS-- If you're hesitating at all, do Seventh Seal first to get the feel for the rock--also a terrific route!
