The striking cracks in the towering wall. Sadly the approach pitch is far from classic but the final crack is worth the effort. Scramble up 30 feet to a good ledge below a short wall.
1) 5b, 30m. Harder and more demanding than it appears. Go up a short easy groove before moving left around the arete (start of The Cruise) to gain the corner on the left. Climb this until a stance and block belay (old tapes in place) can be reached on the left.
2) 5c, 36m. Move to the left and climb the crack in the corner. Where the crack divides, follow the left branch. At a small overhang, move left then step back right following cracks to the final offwidth. Layback or thrutch, it's your choice!
