On the southeast corner of the Reflector Oven crag, left (S) of 'Obstical Illusion' & uphill a little bit, with a smallish tree growing out of the bottom of the crack. Follow the crack which leads to a nice stance at the base of a widening chimney between two slabs. This is the first 5.9 in this part of the crag mentioned in Hensley's 1991 R&I miniguide (the other is the 'Crack d'Arete' which is really 5.7).

Descent Options:

We did another lead off to the right, traversing to the rap tree of 'Chasm Crack' and 'Obstical Illusion'. Single rope rap down.
