BETA PHOTO: The obvious crack is Grandpa's Belay.

Description 

This is a fun route. Start in the big crack to a ledge, then use some small but good holds to another big crack, then on to the anchors.

Location 

This route follows the crack system just to the right of Place Your Bet.

This is a reasonable lead for those with some experience. A 4-inch piece is nice for the upper crack, but a 3.5" will do in a pinch.

Great TR. Some hard (5.9-10) moves are there if you look.

TRAD: Fairly easy lead, some bigger gear is needed for the wide cracks.
