This route climbs the large corner/roof crack above the clearing on the right end of Lightning Ledge.
The name is the informal one we gave it after climbing it in 2006. (On the lead, above the roof, I stepped on a microwave-sized block and felt it move under my foot. I managed to hold it in place long enough for my partner to get WAY out of the way, and then I let it drop. It exploded on slab and sent pieces all the way to the base of the cliff.) It was very mossy/lichen-y at the time, but it's too obvious a line to have not been climbed before. If you know of the original FA names/dates, please let me know and I'll add them.
Climb the corner (wide-style) or the face just to its left until you are below the big roof with the crack. Ape out on big holds and good gear, then make a few hard cranks to get established above. Follow the crack system up and through another, easier overlap (perhaps loose) and belay on the low-angle, mossy slab above.
This climb starts on Lightning Ledge on Table Rock. At the top of K-Mart Special (5.6) there is a small, gravelly clearing in the trees. Above this clearing looms a corner system with an obvious roof crack - that's your route.
