This is a beautiful arching crack. Good hand jams to start. The dihedral very quickly forces you into powerful stemming. Fist jams through the middle. The crux is toward the top of the vertical crack when it widens and the dihedral constricts to force you out of it. The flake behind your head is a great spot for your otherwise useless left hand.
Northwest side of Motorboat Rock. Past Can Opener and Shocker along the trail.
TR anchor from the boulder, walk off the same as other Motorboat Routes. Medium to large pieces.

It's been a decade and a half but I remember this route as very strenuous for the grade.
