This climb is actually independent, starting to the right of the Story of O. It scrambles up some ledges with surprisingly fun jamming to a roof that is skirted to the left with a couple of thin face moves to establish in an awesome finger crack. A couple of reachy moves between locks gets you into a solid splitter that tops out at the first pitch belay of Story of O. You can stop here and make it two pitches, or continue up the gorgeous crack you mentioned and then left to the rappel anchors. Just climbing the short crack at the top would make you miss the definitive crux, and a lot of high quality climbing.

So how high is this climb? It states on the page that it's 20'. Is that a misprint, or is this just a highball boulder problem? Thanks!
