This climb follows a RF and right-leaning dihedral to the right of Dead Deer Cracks. The crack goes from fingers to fists, and is a good exercise in jamming. The quality and difficulty will depend on the state of the vegetation in the crack. Expect to do some cleaning if it has not been climbed in a while.
Descend from a 2-bolt anchor....
Follow the 4th class approach to the upper ledge system. Head right on more 4th class ledges to a tree below the climb.
Rack up to #4 C4, with doubles in thin to large hands....

This pitch offers a little more challenge than it appears from the base. It looked like a short hand crack leading to a low-angle hike to the anchors. But the upper section provides some interesting climbing. It's worth a warm-up or, as in our case, some added mileage at the end of the day.
