Is This Your Crack?

Deb enjoys the moderate climbing.
This is a low end, fun route that can gain the big ledge in the cave or the 2 bolt anchor of the bolted face route. It is much more fun that you might guess based on a look from below. There's a decent chance it has been climbed by a human before. Chipmunks dance up and down it.
Scamper up low angle slabs just below the left edge of the smooth face. Climb a short crack / dihedral to a ledge. Head up and right up a crack / dihedral with a bit of dark lichen. Partway up, the holds draw you left of the crack, and then they draw you to the right of the crack. If you go to the 2 bolt anchor to the right, then make a traverse ~100' up. If you go to the big ledge in the cave, angle up and left on easy but a bit runout terrain.
You can rap 80' from the 2 bolt anchor or do a rap off a 96" (48" looped) thread at the base of the cave. It would be ~180' rappel to the ground. You can also continue up to the top of the formation as for A Way To The Top.
This starts up low angle slabs just below the left edge of the smooth face.
