Screaming Yellow Zonkers Crack
Directions:  Walk the cliff past the Jurassic Wall. Just left of the Rogers Spire buttress there is a steep dirty gully that goes up left. Go up the gully. SYZC is the obvious crack in the middle of the wall.
Description: A totally classic straight-on finger crack. It doesn't get a whole lot better. Generations of crack climbers have cut their teeth on this one.
    Pitch 1: What can we say but jam the crack! Crux is near the top.

Gear: standard rack with small gear & draws
Descent: rappel the route with 1 rope
History:  October 1975 - Jim Dunn
