Richard Shore on Robert's Crack 5.10d

Description 

Approach as for the west face of the Sentinal, but do not turn left behind that formation. Continue away from the nature trail about 200 yards and it is on the left, facing almost directly at the Thin Wall.

This finger to fist crack begins with a small roof. You get to run the gamut on this shorty, everything from fingers, thin hands, to big teacups/fists. Well worth doing, and fairly high on the obsure scale for how far it is off the beaten path. Combine with Magnetic Woose to get your money's worth for the long hike.

Protection 

Standard rack.

This route is a lot harder than it looks and pretty nice. Easier than Semi-Tough maybe?

Short rattly fingers crux over the roof leads to fun hand slamming. Anchor is a ways back from the edge; a good one to belay from up top to reduce rope wear. A bit of a one-move wonder, and definitely easier than Semi-Tough.
