This route ascends the obvious wide crack mentioned in the approach.
Stem past the funky opening, then past a tree, into a very fun, mostly hands, splitter. Finish with steep techy jamming to a bit of chossy soft rock. Topout, and find a way down
Moves: Hands
Descent: Rap from the (scary) anchors of the sport route, or find a tree
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry
Owner: NFS
Steepness:

3 star movement on 2 star rock. the bottom 10 feet and the top 5 feet are kinda choss but the rest of the route is more than worth it.

Yep, some of the best straight in crack climbing in the red. If the top was better rock, then it would almost be worth the approach!
