This route at the far righthand side of the Tuna & Chips wall and leads up an anchor on the wall just west of the front of the alcove forming The Oasis. It's easier in my opinion than Chips & Salsa, which is rated at 5.3. It is highly featured and offers lots of protection opportunities, and would be a good route for a beginning trad leader. However, some of the rock is soft and friable, so care should be taken on gear placements, especially cams. The route contains numerous and well distributed spots for solid nut placements. The route can be rapped with one 60 meter rope.

This has the softest rock i have ever climbed on. Tri cams and larger wires are the best bet . The last traverse moves to the anchor are a bit scary for the grade.
