Climb the arete on the left side of the walkup. Head up and left in the diagonal crack, which starts 15 feet up. Follow it on good rock to the top.


On the right wall of the White Trash area, this is the diagonal crack just left of the walkup. Start on the left arete of the walkup.


Gear to 3". Rap on trees or walkdown. There may be bolts now.

This is a really fun route. Just as great as Albino Rhino, Poison Ivy, and Boston Rag.

There is now a bolted anchor with rap rings for this route.

Nuts down lower and smaller cams up to #2 above. Be careful placing nuts, I've never once climbed this (and I've done it several times) where my first piece didn't pop after moving 2 or 3 pieces above it. Make sure it's lengthened properly.
