Follow the left side of the large block to the left of Piece of Cake. Lots of small edges and thin cracks. Leadable but a little sparse, with primarily small pro (nuts, small cams). Closed for many years but re-opened as of Fall 2005.
  • RCM&W #43, p.165.


This route is the left side of the large block to the left of Piece of Cake.


Small gear for lead. Standard TR setup.

Great lead w/ decent gear after an easy 15'.

Led this yesterday. Like Russel mentioned, the first 15 feet is unprotectable, but easy. You can get a solid nut or a cam under the overhang, then the rest can be sewn up. While this could be led on all passive gear, you could really speed things up with a set of cams to #3.
