Description 

Eat is a fun crack climb that ascends the near vertical face just to the right of P.G. 13, and left of the corner formed by the intersection of the two walls. Look for a large tree at the top of the route. There are a series of three cracks that lace the face - a center crack, one to the right near the bottom, and one to the left near the top. The climb starts off as a good hand crack and then transitions to a couple of layback moves. Above the layback, jam more cracks to the top. The crux is getting out of the final cracks and onto the ledge with the anchors. Continuously steep climbing (looks easier from the ground) and great jams makes this a fun route.

Protection 

Small to medium sized gear. 2-bolt top anchor.
