This is a secure, knobby hand crack on the left side of the north face. Rappel from the top.

Short but fun. Although I agree the crack itself is 5.2, there are several ways to gain the crack. The direct start is reachy and feels about 5.8. For beginners and anyone not liking this poorly protected start, take the ramp leading up to the right, then walk back to the left to get to the crack.

5.2? While easy climb both Bartlett book and Vogel has it as a 5.6. Maybe you should just say it's 4th class and call it a day!
