Another great hand and finger crack. Plenty of protection.
From the Zombie Roof (mondo roof with a crack running through it, visible from the trail), follow a trail along the base of the wall to the left. It switches back up, under a large boulder, to a fixed hand-line. Climb the hand-line up to the ledge. Toward the right end of the ledge begins Laughing Crack (it will be obvious). Rappel the route. Also, you can rappel off the ledge using two chains at the top of So (5.12) (look behind you).
Gear to 2 inches. Two-bolt anchor on top.

Ridiculous fun. Very consistent fingers to thin hands. Protects beautifully, You could place a piece every foot if you felt so inclined. If you are looking for a fun, first trad outing, be aware that the fixed line leading to the base of this route is burly and vertical without great feet. Inexperienced climbers may want a belay from the two-bolt station above.

Best 5.7 crack around those parts, (ok tied with Klahanie ;)). I did this Onsight right after getting my Banana Peel redpoint, my first 9 pitch day, so fun!
