This is a pretty fun crack and a little bit harder than Omega Crack to the right. After scrambling up onto the ledge take off up the main line, staying strong through the low crux and up some easier ground to the anchors in the small cave. Depending on hand size and your mud tolerance this route could feel like 5.8 or 5.10a. It might feel harder once the rhodo at the top falls out.
