Description:

Same climb as Brinton's Crack, but instead of traversing right from the niche, climb directly up an exposed face to top out. Great fun.. but, expect some-what run-out climbing on lead.

Did this one right after sunset without a headlamp...

Me: "This has to be the hardest 5.6 ever! Wait, I'm doing direct, aren't I?"

Belayer: "Yep"

Missed the traverse.
