Description 

An easy chimney becomes steep and shallow for its crux exit sequence. The scramble down is a bit tricky - the easiest way is to climb up to the top of the rock and then go down the back side. This climb is in the shade most of the time.


Location 

north end of the northeast face


Protection 

a few pieces to 3 inches

I'll never forgive my girlfriend for making me lead this. The reason for the name is probably because the only pro they got in on the FA was Carolyn's rump. Figure on soloing the chimney, which is the climb. The crux is definitely getting off the damn thing. And bring soap and water, you'll need it to get all the guano off your hands.
