OverviewLess sustained and less quality than Knapsack Crack, this route is a great first outdoor rock climb. The crux comes low on face moves that protect with cams in a pod in the flake. The route then climbs the obvious diagonal crack to the summit on mostly 5.4 and easier terrain. Note: the original route (Manic Depression) wanders through the summit overhangs from the first belay on runout 5.8 terrain.
