When standing under Crack Attack, just look to your left. This is the crack on the opposite side of the dihedral from Crack Attack. Scramble up and belay from the vegetated ledge. Starts as a nice hand crack and then shrinks to a couple rough finger tip moves. Finish on large ledge, and crawl back a little to see where it got its name.

Not sure how that happened. I'm pretty sure I corrected that in 3rd edition.

Yeah, Jim's Dihedral is one of the best IMO

Is this route near Crack Attack? We could not find it, but may be did not go far enough to the left.

It's to the left of the dihedral that's to the left of Crack Attack. It's visible from the base of Crack Attack.

Saw that Cave Cricket has been scrubbed clean so I jumped on it. What a great route, awesome finish. This line is up definitely worth it and should see way more traffic than it gets. Do yourself a favor and pull out the hands and finger rack and get in this one.
