Located on the extreme north side of the east face of snowshed wall, this short route heads up a flared crack from atop a large block.
You can throw all different types of jams to pull yourself up this route, and there are also small holds outside of the crack for hands and feet if you need them.
medium to large friends (1" - 3 1/2") and nuts.
You can set up a top anchor using pro on top of the crack, or a draggy anchor from the top bolts of the next climb over called Conform or Be Cast Out (5.11c/d).

Short but on you almost immediately. Pro's well if you've got firepower in reserve...

I disagree with the beta for pro up to 3 1/2. Largest I brought was a #2 camalot I didn't even place. 1 x #.5 camalot (protected last move to anchors), 1 x #.75 camalot, 2 x #1 camalot, and 1 x yellow alien. And that was no "hero" lead: this is a short crack.
It's a fun crack requiring some thin jams and some face moves. It is a good option if the entire East side of Snowshed is getting railed like a sexy grandma.

Short but stout. I was amazed at the pump this created...

If you are to place a directional, locate it just above the bulge (i.e., not too high) or risk rope eating fun! Sweet little crack!
