This is a good obscure crack. Pretty easy for the grade but steep and exposed. Worth the walk and the exploring!
On the opposite side of Tamerack Creek from Tales of Power and Seperate Reality, this route is located directly above the left side of Pat and Jack's. Park at the long pullout just west of the Cascade Creek Bridge on Hwy 120. Hike through the woods and a wet section of reeds. Continue down and around small granite slopes and terraces until you reach the cliff edge. The climb is closer to the Tamerack Creek side of the cliff than the Cascade Creek side. Look for a west facing corner, this is Prime Time 5.9 Through Bein' Cool is just to the west. Look over the edge, you should see a granite ramp with a tree in the middle of it about 80 feet down. Rap to just below the tree. This is the start of the climb. Way cool place to be when Wildcat Falls is pumping!
Standard Rack. If you need anything extra it would be 1.5 - 2.5 friends.

I hear this area above Pat and Jack's being referred to as Airplane Ledges. Apparently this was a favorite spot around the time of the infamous marijuana loaded airplane crash. The sunny ledges and terraces were a good place to dry out.
There is a good bouldering wall here that is about 15ft high and 100ft long with knobs. Come here to hang out in the sun and do the Bongsmoke Traverse V0-.
