|The Crack House (aka Estante Edge)
This is perhaps the best route at the cliff, and may be the best hard crack climb in White Rock. Climb some thin face and crack moves for 20 feet to a 10 foot roof split by a hand/finger crack. Powerful moves lead out of the lip, then it eases up to the top.
This route is about 20 feet to the right of True Grit.
No Bolts, anchor with gear.

I cleaned and TR'd this line, but never led it. I think Josh Smith was the first to do the lead.
I still have a pile of info on most of this stuff sitting around somewhere, maybe at some point I'll dig it out and upload it.

This climb has a 2-bolt anchor with quicklinks. The anchor might benefit from these being replaced with chains.
I think I heard somewhere that Walt W. put the anchors in here a while ago, so people in the houses above would be less aware of climbers below.
Oh yeah- this roof is amazing and way bigger than Lens Roof at the Overlook- wish I could climb it. Getting to the lip is powerful and hard already, and the next 2 moves are still not clear to me.
I'm not a good person for rack beta for this climb, but 2 each of #0.5 and #0.75 camalots is probably a good idea.
