i climbed the crack with a tree at its base. my friend climbed the crack to the right. beware, there's no good spot to rappel from if you just want to do the first ledge with no traverse. the traverse was a little tricky (it was wet and snowy). it looks like this would be a fun 3 pitch (bonzo, grunge, couth). a bit chossy, but we enjoyed it.

We went past the first ledge all the way to the second. It was a lot harder than 5.4. Kinda chossy scary and full of spiders, but still fun!
