The Right Tube climbs the right of the the two end cracks on the Nautilus, at the far end of the crag from the parking area. A true fist crack, the bigger your mitts the easier this baby is going to feel. If you have small chops and cannot get fist jams, good luck, it may be 5.12 for you. The upper part of the crack is considerably easier than the start. Read Left Tube beta for anchors and descent info.
Up to 4" cams required, wider stuff for the easier climbing above. Those with small hands may opt for an additional wrap or 2 of tape around the thumb area to increase fist size- or is that cheating?

Speaking of which, a fist will get you into the crux, and a handstack will get you out of it. It didn't seem 5.11, but now it's hard to type with no skin on the sides of my hands.

To add insult to injury (literally), this route has been soloed on numerous occasions in t-shirt, shorts and illicited no blood.
