Description 

The crux is getting your way out of the restful alcove. I guess it's also a little cruxy traversing to the anchors; you want there to be a jug for that move, but...

Anyway. Amazing route. Definitely out of bounds, you're not allowed to climb it. It's as close to the tracks as Clean Crack and Caboose are.


Location 

Just past Crescent Crack (climber's left), next to a sign that tells you you're not allowed to climb on it.


Protection 

So, you'd think it would take a lot of hand-sized gear, right? That's what I thought. In reality, it takes as many Grey Camalots (.4, not #4) that you can throw at it. If I went back to it I'd take 4 greys, 2 purples, 2 greens and then some hand-sized stuff. Oh, and a #5. I placed a #5 in the alcove. You definitely don't need to, but I'd just bought it and wanted to place it. Definitely extend it if you do. Chains at the top.

I walked past this and others in the no climb zone and wanted to climb them too. I guess if you lower in and are at least 10' above the base you could TR them, or even lead if you were so inspired.
