BETA PHOTO: The start of Holy Mackerel.

Description 

Start at a right facing crack that angles right near the top that puts you on a nice belay ledge about 50 ft. up. The belay ledge at the top is an awesome ledge to take photos.

Location 

Obvious layback crack just left of flounder. Only accessible in the winter when the lake is drained.

Protection 

Gear to 4 inches to a set of ring anchors on the ledge.
