BETA PHOTO: Great Beginnings crack

Description 

Starts below a right facing corner on a large triangular slab. Work your way basically straight up to the corner where a prominent diagonal flake and a small bulge/roof meet. Go up the right side of the diagonal flake over the bulge or traverse across bulge/roof and then go up. The latter works better if your top rope is set up on Snowflake.

Location 

Towards the center of the Seclusion area between Great Beginnings (on the left) and Snowflake (on the right).

Protection 

Top rope on tree anchors.

Did the route on-sight/on lead and not sure if I just didn't climb it well, but my follower did it a little different and would agree - there were a couple moves that made this seem like a very hard 5.8 relative to the other routes in the area.

Completely agree. This route has a very difficult crux for 5.8. I've tried it maybe 5 different ways and the only successful attempt involved a painful figure jam and some really small feet. I've seen one person do it differently so I look forward to the next attempt.
