Description 

This slabby shiny route starts on the smaller broken wide crack just to the right of the direct start of the main crack. Follow the crack up and eventually left to join up with the main crack 25 feet off the floor.

This involves a balancy set of moves that I personally wouldn't do without a top rope on, as the crux is about 20 feet off the ground.


Protection 

pro to 3 1/2 inches. Anchors on top for a top rope, see the rock directions for how to set up a toprope.

A crashpad may make a trad fall nicer, but I don't think it will feel good dropping from the crux even onto a pad.
