There's lots of ways to do this - with V3 being the easiest way. It's quite overhanging and burly, with some pretty dynamic moves - the committing move over the top is a fitting finish.
Pat yourself on the back when done - it's a milestone problem.

I have upgraded the rating from V2 after input from Jon McCartie of ClimbLa.com.

simply in comparison to Pile Lieback (which Chris has at V2), the Crack seemed more difficult to me. also rated at V3 elsewhere (at RC.com as well as Chris' guide for Stoney).
thanks, chris. and thanks for all the work you do on this site.

I don't think I've seen one. Pretty tough for the grade. You can either toe hook the arÍte, heel hook higher up the starting hold seam, or even swing your feet out left to the big scoop to get into the crappy pocket. After that the holds are pretty good but somewhat dynamic to get to.
