The crack bottoms out near the top of the first pitch of SS Gully. This route climbs this crack. Pitch 1: Climb about the dihedral about 10' right of the SS Gully route to a belay stance about 15' below the roof. 5.6, 175' Pitch 2: Climb up to the roof, then work through it to the crack above. Belay on a ledge about 20' above the roof. 5.9, 45' Pitch 3: Continue up the crack until it ends at a stance. 5.6, 175' Pitch 4: Climb up a bit, then step right onto the slab and work over to a featured arete and make a delicate step up and right onto a belay ledge. 5.6+, 60' Pitch 5: Step right and climb the dihedral until about 40' below an obvious bulge, then step left onto the slab and work up and left around the bulge, finishing about 40' above the bulge. 5.5, 190'

3 out of 5 stars FRA with Larry

fun day out, finally bagged that wide crack that I've been eyeing for a while. I suspect that its been done before- some rap slings down and right from one of the belay ledges are probably evidence of this, but then again, maybe not!
