Its the way down at the end of the nears tucked under an enourmous roof. Goes up the left corner to a 25 foot right slanting horizontal roof crack and then out the lip. The crack can be kind of wet and funky so be prepared for some tough placements.

Walk down around to the left.

4 out of 5 stars Funky

An exhausting lead, the last part of the roof and the bit above the lip was crazy. The roof didnt seem that big at first but then I realized it was enormous... it comes out from the wall 20' and the slanting crack through it is probably 25 or 30'. Very different from twlilight zone, definatly harder! Worth doing if u have the experience.
