Description:

Route starts 15ft left of Crack-a-lo-lo (not the crappy diheral with the thorn bush in it). Take a direct start, or scramble up the easier slab further left then traverse right on a big ledge to a buldge with a nice big hand crack in it. Reaching over buldge allows gear placement, than step into left-leaning crack. Bigger hands/fist down low, with hands at top. Traversing right around the corner at the top will put you right on Crack-a-lo-lo chains or set natural anchor. (For a reference: Tony's guide book page 82, the black arrow in the bottom right of photo points directly to the start of this crack). It is short but a fun crack with good jams. Please feel free to update, i don't know anything else about it. My rating is a guess since i don't climb many cracks.

4 out of 5 stars sweet

if you like it rough, that is!
5.8's about right . . . i leapfrogged cams from the left to get in it, since there's no pro (but sweet moves) on the face below
