BETA PHOTO: Overhang Crack, Deep Creek Narrows, 5.8
Start in an alcove below a roof that leads to an obvious crack on nearly vertical rock.
Pulling the roof is the first crux, and may take some problem solving for a climber leading at their limit. There's a second crux of sorts higher up where the wall steepens where the crack is hard to jam.
Scramble up boulders from the belay then to the right and back down the gully to your gear.
Small to 3 inches. A #3 camalot isn't overkill. Perfect cracks up top to take small cams (up to .75 C4s) for the anchor.
Protect well below the roof. Until you're standing on the small ledge above the roof, there's no place for gear.
