Climb the crack in the corner. Exit left and climb the crack up left.


Up to the left of Recollections of Pacifica, around the arete and on a small ledge below a crack in the corner.

Walk right on the ledge to bolts to rap off.


Regular rack. Gear anchor.

The guidebook calls this route a little contrived, and it is. The lower corner is probably the crux, although the upper corner has a thin move right at the top (SO much easier if you just reach out to the jugs on the left). Instead of building a gear anchor, just put in a directional at the top of the route and then walk 20 feet right and belay off the Recollections of Pacifica/Wafer Step bolts--you'll have to rap from them anyway.
