Description 

crack route, mostly. scramble ten feet up to gain the crack, follow this up to where the crack trends left and then the crack ends. Then just go up the easy slab about 20 feet to the anchors. Not a crack you have to jam in as it has lots of blocky holds but can be jammed in a few places if you like. Fun climbing.


Location 

shares top anchor bolts with slab route called Sophie and Jeb. Find it by locating these bolts and rapping down towards the far right (while facing the rock) this will be an obvious blocky crack from the bottom but not really visible while above. then you can TR it or pull your rope and lead it.


Protection 

No bolts except the two at the top for an anchor. takes gear well all the way up except the very top, but the last section is super low angle slab (easy). You can easily protect the crack with a few cams up to a number 3 C4 and a few tricams for the funky placements, (I used 2 nuts, the pink, red and brown tricam and my #3 and #2 c4 I also placed a couple nuts. very easy climb to protect and good practice for gear placements.
