Serious route. Involves climbing on some unstable rock and challenging protection. This route follows the crack that diagonals to the right. Start below and slightly right of the crack and boulder up and left (felt like 5.9 to me but what do I know....TA) to reach the crack. First opportunity for pro is about 10 to 12 feet up. Follow crack until it is possible to make a traverse right into another crack system. Carefully climb over several bulges (kinda chossy) to the top (about ten feet left of the anchor bolts on Taco Time. Use a tree about 30 feet back for the belay.

I tried this first and got up about head high and found a hard spot. I ended up starting to barn door and made a dynamic diagonal leap for a two handed grab of a ledge to my left and made it. Got to about 50ft up and found another spot that was hard. I actually started to feel my fingers going and ended up slipping off the holds. Rested for a second and got to the top.
