Laura Machacek seconding the last pitch
Photo by: ...
Start on the crack with a tree inside a right facing corner. The crack continuously widens and eventually turns into an off-width. Step up and slightly left, and continue on a crack towards the roof. Pull the roof (crux) and continue to the big ledge (some loose rock). From the ledge traverse left and finish on pitch 3 of Laceration Jam.
The route ascents the very prominent crack system with a small roof ~50 ft up, between Laceration Jam and Scars and Tripes. It is easily identifiable by the tree at the bottom (see beta picture).
Cams up to #5 BD. Double on medium sizes. Set of medium and large nuts. 24" slings.

double to triples of BD #2 and #3. single #1, #4. if not comfortable with wide cracks, take an extra four or two for the bottom. agree with author: take some 24" runners. also, bit of frail rock above the roof. belay takes small cams to #3.
man, those hand cracks and that roof are fun!
