Description 

This is the lichen covered right facing corner just left of Pick Yer Crack. I think we left a pink tricam and nut as an anchor. I remember thinking this would be good with some serious BBQ brushes and heavy cleaning.

Location 

Corner a few feet left of Pick Yer Crack

I'm glad I rapped in to take a look at this and Pick Your Crack. They are much longer and better looking than they look from below. They have gone up high on my list of to-dos. The rock quality looks super nice. It looked like a good line might go in to the right also, starting from the beginning of 357 Crack.

Does the arÍte to the left have any features on it? I remember thinking about that as a potential line. Also, the slab further left has a blade type seam splitting it, pretty thin if I remember?

I didn't get over and low enough to have a close look at the arete. I was on a tension traverse to get over to where I took the photo. I did rap into the top further over to the left, but I guess not quite far enough for French Free. I saw a line that went up nice scoops and shallow corners of the same high quality granite as over on the Meadow Brook slabs, but unfortunately, there looked to be a 15 foot blank section 2/3s of the way up. I'll have a good look next time I am over there. I am curious about what is on all that other rock further to the left too. Did you guys ever get up into that area? From the ground it looked like it could be fairly extensive above the somewhat broken lower part.

FF did take some "shallow corners" but the main feature I remember was a shorter vertical #1 camelot crack to the trees. When we came down I remember rapping over a hard to spot KB crack/seam that sparked interest. As far as further left I remember lots of rock but not as many features.
