Deceptive Crack, foot smearing, hand jamming. Farthest obvious crack to the right when standing at the base and looking up. THe land owners can be pills and have been known to lock people in with their fat meatal gate, so it's probably best to walk down from the road.

4 out of 5 stars Stiff

Seemed pretty hard. The crack was too small for any good hand jams on the traverse.

4 out of 5 stars Deceptive indeed

It is harder than it looks but the crux is a short traverse. Place a good piece before it and climb quick till you get to the the next good jam.

Backed off on lead - slimy and insecure for me. So I tried it on toprope instead - hardest moves are the first few after getting established in the crack then it slowly eases up. A bit polished.
