Gain the finger crack via small holds. Go to top of crack, step right to first bolt. Friction up through pockets, horizontals and large crystals clipping a few more bolts on the way to fixed anchors. Longest route on the cliff and a fun climb.
At the right end of the cliff, on a less than verical face with an obvious vertical finger crack beginning ten feet up. Just left of the small right arching, right facing corner that begins Fawn Crack.
Protect the thin crack down low with gear and clip bolts the rest of the way

Did this climb in June 2013. This is a nice route, well protected and fun. The rock here is beautiful - lots of nice little nubbins, waves, etc. for footholds and handholds. Just a nice fun climb.
This entire crag is really a nice place to climb. Very quiet there - nice clean rock for most all of the climbs. A few spots/climbs were wet - so we just avoided those and did others. Good bolts and bolted rap anchors as well.
Note: Is a little wet and muddy on the hike in which is a easy hike per se - but you def want at least ankle high hiking boots or muck boots - esp if after we have had a lot of rainfall. This place tends to get every wet and 'swampy' on the approach esp if after a lot of rain as we have had recently. Much of the crag is shaded as well, until at least 3-4 PM, so it's cool and shady there. Def bring bug repellant as well!
The hike is an actual 40 min hike in and out, but a easy hike and not too strenuous. As in many areas these days I highly recommend DEET repellant for bugs as well as ticks. We did not see any ticks per se - but the risk of them is everywhere now.
