This is the crack with the slippery 5.9 start that turns into a layback, becoming much easier up to a large ledge, with a short 5.3 crack up to a large tree.

Usually there's a cheater block at the base. Come'on though, we both know that you don't need that.


The first crack left from the swan slab chimney, and just right of the 5.7 Unnamed crack. Use Chris Macnamara's guidebook for more specific directions.


Cams + Nuts. Or toprope it.

Incredibly slick start, but you can get a nut that protects the start from the ground (if you're tall). Note that the easiest way off is to downclimb the 5.0 face below and climber's left of the tree, then down over the boulder, climber's left.
