That crack looks sorta like an off-width from the photo- good jams or sketchy arms & the like? How are the feet? Nice photo.

It has good hands and feet - although it is a little work at that altitude. It is short - maybe ten feet above a large ledge.

I agree!!! I felt the crux was right after the fresh air travese and half way up the off width chimney, but right before the belay station...
