In the dihedral between the main 5.12 wall and Bourbon Barrel Shotgun is this often damp left-leaning crack. An improbable start with a couple good finger-sized cams leads to fun off-balance jamming and liebacking. Save a .5 Camalot for the Horsepens topout slopers. Well worth doing if you catch it dry (late summer or fall).

Curious Dustin, did you find some tattered grey webbing on the tree at the top of this? looks like a line we did 5 years ago.

Don't expect any decent face holds to save you from the flaring off width and sloping top out. After attempting this for my warmup the other day I nearly puked then couldn't move for the next two hours. What the hell!
