BETA PHOTO: starting up the big flake
A short but fun pitch. Climb up a big flake and then over a bulge to a ledge under a huge roof. Route finding was a slight issue at the crux but there is a small dark crack that you can follow straight up and left to the ledge under the roof.
Near the end of the Trapps by the S turns, well right of Casanova. We had a tough time finding a marked trail up so we scrambled up through the talus. On the way down we found a trail marker which was about 25-50' before the first turn on the carriage road.
Fixed anchor under roof for descent. Standard rack.

For a second pitch traverse right under the roof until the end of the roof. Go up a broken crack system up the face. This is the second pitch of Krazy Krack (5.6 G)

Nice enough route. Dick lists a variation of P1 as climbing the face to the left of the crack, after you've come up the initial flakes and stepped right. I think this is what I did - it felt like a somewhat bigger move than 5.6. The route proper says to step right after the initial flakes, then continue up past the crack.

Beautiful big flake. A great route for new 5.6 leaders - short and sweet. I thought the crux at the top was finding the route just past the vertical crack to the anchors.

For anyone interested a new route got climbed here that goes up off the trigger point anchor and straight out the big roof...
