Description 

This route felt much harder than we expected since the guidebook said it was 5.6. It is kind of an interesting lead with a lot of stemming and little OW. The pro is thin until you reach the bottom of the crack, at which point you will spend a lot of time looking in little nooks and crannies for the best place to put pro. There is a large wedged boulder on top that can be slung for an anchor. Scramble off down a sandy chimney and walk back around to the base of the crag.

Location 

The last crack on the right of the crag that is of significant height. It is really wide. Just go straight up.

Protection 

A wide assortment of pro. There are a lot of options, but some aren't that great. Bring a very long peice of webbing for the boulder on top.
