At a short right-leaning crack in a corner, just right of Easy Keyhole.

Slick start (rock is slippery) leads to a nice climb. Try the direct start, once you go up the layback start go straight up rather than traverse right. It's a one move variation, but, it's fun.

Did this on top rope today and it was a bunch of fun. I liked it more than Laurel, another nearby 5.7 crack climb. Three sections of interesting moves. Great way to end a weekend of lead climbing and drain the lasyt remaining energy from the batteries, then hobble out to the car.
