Description:

Flaring crack. (edit:) If you start at the ground this is a nice, varied climb, starting with a short friction slab, then at the ledge there's about a ten-foot chimney up to a big crack up the main, low-angle frictiony slab. Crack adds some nice security for the brand-spankin'-noobs. In fact, it's more a question of not getting stuck in it than not being secure enough!
