did you like assembly line? all pic's i've seen of it make it seem like the crack is flared out and not that nice...but folks tell good things of it.

Assembly line was excellent. The start of the climb took me off guard as it entailed ~15 feet of yellow alien sized finger crack. Not 5.9 in my book, but an excellent climb. Above the finger crack was ~100 feet of perfect #2/#3 Camalot splitter in a corner. I don’t recall it being flared at all. The second pitch (which takes you to the summit) detracts from the overall quality of the route, but all of the tower routes are that way.

I think Assembly line is the left crack in the center of the photo. The one on the right, directly below the anchors, is a flared #4 Camalot crack from what I have heard. Maybe that is the source of the confusion.
