Description:

Right of Howard's Slab is an arete split by a crack. Climb it up to a stout pine tree, about 12m. Short but quite fun. (Note this is the '5.9 crack' next to 'Leisure Suit Larry' in Hensley's old R&I miniguide from '91.)

3 out of 5 stars Wish it was longer!

Good stuff, but it's over just as you start to climb! Fun warmup, though in an often-overlooked part of the mountain.
