At the pin anchor

Description 

Another one of Cannon's right arching cracks! Although a bit short I found the moves on this thin crack to be quite enjoyable.

Excellent crack climbing off the ground gains a stance below the crux. Stay left using the face and crack, or stay right and climb the crack direct, (a little harder) up to a ledge. From here aim for a shallow corner flanked by a nice short hand crack (5.8). Belay from fixed pins above.


Location 

Start about 50 feet south of Vertigo /Union Jack. This trip starts up a thin crack that splits a "mini buttress".


Protection 

Protects very well, small nuts, cams to hand size. Rap with a single 60m rope.

Is this the very thin crack you pass walking north past vertigo before you get to "the zone" while walking towards the weissners area?

I added some photos that should help with the location. I'm not familiar with the crack you mentioned but I'll take a look. Any info?
