4 out of 5 stars Crossover Direct

Why does this route called Crossover Direct? There is nothing direct about it. For a better line ascend Wheaties, clip an anchor bolt and proceed up the awesome flake.

4 out of 5 stars nice crack climb

This is a great crack climb in a predominately slab climbing area. Lead it without clipping the bolts. There is no need for bolts next to an easily-protected crack climb just because this is a sport climbing area. Second pitch is rarely done, but is way better than pitch 1.
