20 Cheezgrater Trad 20m

Find the big obvious crack next to a very pointy boulder on the west facing cliff. It doesn't look overhung, but it is. It looks smooth, but it isn't. Just follow crack until you start to bleed, Continue to loose blood, and when you can't possibly loose any more blood, continue until you reach the top. Tape recommended.
