This is the crack in the left-facing corner next to Pillbox Crack. It looks easy and low-angle from the ground, but will surprise you with how steep it feels while climbing it. The route is often overlooked, but is high quality, solid and fun. When Ordeal, Portent, Jorgies, Swallow, Wet Kiss, etc. are all busy, you can probably walk right onto this one.
Just climb up the corner crack, past a little tree-let, to a bolted rap anchor.
On rappel, try to avoid the healthy growth of poison oak at the base.
At the left end of Discovery Wall, almost right above the trail intersection with the Moses Springs Trail. Look for the obvious poison oak bush.
