Super flared right tending crack leads to easier terrain then a juggy hand crack roof. The crux isn't too bad and can be protected adequately if care is taken. Wild moves at the crux, double gastoning to campus your left foot up as your right foot is largely useless.

The best route at Indian Cove for me to date and one of the better routes I have climbed at Jtree. A flaring crack with the crux down low, but protected well. The trick is jamming the flare even though they feel so-so and keeping your left foot working the crack while the right foot finds some subtle purchase on the slab out right. The second half is all secure hand jams with a fun little roof pull. Rap the bolted routes to the left. Good Stuff.
(followed) Very cool route, for the crux, I put my right foot out onto the knob while working my left foot-jam up the crack until I could reach up for the bomber right hand. Sweet moves at the crux and again at the top!
