Guppie starts on the darker rock and goes up easier terrain to a great resting stance before angling to about 100 degrees through the crux and then go back to vertical. The crux is probably about 2/3 of the way up (although the finish can be hard if you get too pumped lower down).
Right end of the wall.

Very fun route on good holds although the vertical slot can tweak the left pinky if you clip off it. A nice warmup for the harder routes or a fun project if near your limit.

This route is definitely steeper than 100 degrees at the crux and it never goes back to vertical--it stays overhanging till you clip the chains... Super fun climbing on great rock!

I agree with Yevquest, I remember trying to send the route and nearly broke my finger off on one of the pocket holds. I did manage to send it but my finger was sore for a few days. That one hold can be tendon tweaky so just be careful. If you do the route you'll know what I am talking about. I jammed my finger in it and literally got it stuck for a second(couldn't get it out). Great warmup for surfer rosa and nemo which are right next door. This crag is awesome for potrero!!!
