Start up face buckets behind a large horizontally growing bush to join a right-veering crack, just before it straightens vertical and passes through two large concavities with bulgy exits on finger cranking.

Descent Options:

Walk-off to climber's right with a sketchy downclimb move or two OR easy but longer walk off left. (Rap station is no more)

5 out of 5 stars awesome

Like others said; too bad it was not longer. In any case it was just awesome.

5 out of 5 stars Colorado Crack

With Liddy. One of my favorite Jtree settings. Great climb, as good as any of the 5.9's. You can walk off either way. The east is a bit more technical.

3 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it

Fun climb. Beware, the flake in the middle is going to blow. I distinctly heard some creaking I when gripped it.
