Climb up the crack starting on the left side of the ledge formed by a large flake. It is perfect hands in clean rock with some fingers and a short wide section. Go through a bulge and past a roof created by a huge boulder. Trend right to finish on a crack right below rap bolts.
Approach from the top of Divide Road. As you are driving up the road, you want to pull over at the first open area you see on the right. You will see a relatively flat granite area, clear of trees, and with a few small cairns made of sandstone.
Walk out onto the flat area and walk along looking from rap bolts at the edge. There are several sets in the area. This is the route second from the left (climber's right) in the area with rap bolts.
Bolt are located on a huge block that is accessed by down climbing five feet to a square shaped ledge (5x5).
Double rope rap straight down to obvious ledge, no fixed anchors (extra #0.75 Camalots for anchors).
Double set of Camalots from #0.5 to #3 with a few extra hand sizes.

Awesome crack climb. fantastic jamming. The obvious ledge is a small one, I built an anchor there (bring a few extra #0.75 +/-) I used nearly the entire double rack with triples of 2 & 3.
