Description 

Climb up the left fork of the crack to a stance on a ledge. Make a move or two up the crack's fading path, then step left onto the plated face and climb up knobs to a slightly-left tilted vertical crack. Get what you can in this and head up to a horizontal (good gear). Take a step left and go up a vertical crack to another horizontal, where another shift leads to easy ground leading to the belay at an oak tree.

Location 

40' right of the start of Second Amendment, at a short, dirty, wet crack behind a tree. The crack splits at head height, forking right up a nasty right-facing, right-arching corner; and left to cleaner rock and a ledge to its left 3 meters up.

Protection 

Offset cams may tame the beast significantly. These were unavailable on the FA. Expect a few poorly-installed cams interspersed with bomber gear.
