This route is near the right end of the face. It goes up one crack system, then traverses right to a second one. It's not worth doing.

Man, do I have to respectfully disagree. I've climbed nearly all the lines on this wall and "Stucca by a Yucca" is clearly the best, IMHO. It features a long, dicey sequence for the grade, with little for pro, then wanders off in search of another vertical crack. I appreciate that the FA team finished up and right over more interesting ground, rather than follow the natural line up over the easy blocks.

I like when people say a route "isn't worth doing." rating a route's quality is one thing. Outright saying it isn't worth doing is pointless.

A route's quality is subjective, to some degree. We found this route to be a lot of fun. Definitely worth doing.
