Description 

A chossy start leads through a steep, wide crack to nice crack climbing above. Very fun climbing through an overhanging corner replete with great handjams and jugs.

Once through the overhang, the difficulty backs off. There is one more fun, steep section just below the anchors, but this is much easier than it looks.

One of the best moderate trad leads at the Overlook, along with Polly's Crack and Cholla Crack.


Location 

Left of Captain Smarmbag. Shown as route number 22 on the Overlook route topo photo.


Protection 

Nuts and some medium to large cams (including up to two #2 camalots) to bolted anchor.
