This is an interesting alternative to the second pitch of Edward's Crack. It follows a line of three bolts and then traverses right to a flared crack in a corner. Start by getting yourself to the top of the first pitch of Edward's Crack. You'll see a bolt up and to the right. Climb to it, then climb up and left to the next bolt, and then up and right to the third one. Finally, traverse easily to the right to the flared crack in a corner and take that to the top. I found there to be a crux right after each bolt.
This route is to the right of the second pitch of Edward's Crack. Get yourself to the top of the first pitch, walk about ten feet to the right on that ledge, and you'll see the first bolt. Descend by going to the top of the formation and walking off or traversing right to the standard rappel route on the wall.
Draws (or shoulder slings) for the three bolts and gear for the dihedral and top-out. A standard rack should suffice.
