Start on the blocky ledge left of Obediah, where Duck Soup, George's Niche, and the Horn also start. Scramble up and right to the obvious seam in a left facing corner. Slot a nut and make a few hard technical moves before the seam widens and eases. Great moves, but more of a boulder problem really..
Just left of Obediah, just right of the Horn.

A one or two trick pony without doubt, but what tricks they are! Deffinately worthy to get a .12 lead under the belt. You will also want some very small wires/cams/loweballs..

It's rare to find a climb where the crux moves are protected by a 000 and #1 nut. Props to locals for keeping bolts off this thing (and the rest of the crag) and preserving this type of scarefest.
