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...

This is a nice little route with initial big burly moves on great holds and then a tricky little crux bulge. A good end-of-the day pitch if you happen to be wandering around Sleepy Hollow.

Gosh, I didn't see any burly moves on this climb. It was easy peasy, happy joyful. Holds abound and gear is plentiful. Really enjoyed this short climb. Once you are on the ledge above the flake, head slightly right to the vertical crack. Go up and left to the good horizontal for gear then head to the top.
