Just right of Banana Crack and the bolted face climb. The crack goes pretty much straight up and the crux is where you have a few feet of delicate face climbing to reach the two-bolt anchor.

Walk off to the left

2 out of 5 stars Short but full value

Hand stack that bitch! Takes #2-4 Camalots. I didn't need a 5 for the horizontal--can use another #2. Bouldery face moves at top. Set an anchor that extends over the face and which can be clipped before the top-out moves if you don't want to risk taking a bad fall (it is quite possible)

4 out of 5 stars schizophrenic route

start and finish of the route are so different from one another. I placed old style 3, 3.5, and 4 camalots in the layback crack, and and old #5 in the horizontal.

3 out of 5 stars Seemed easier than Banana Crack to me

Straight forward crack climbing to a somewhat scary face finish.
