Not the best shot, it's a little fuzzy.


Follow the two bolts in the middle of the slab, climb up to the overhanging hand crack. The path of least resistance is at least 10a on the slab and the hand crack 10b/c.


This is in the middle of Gnome Dome below obvious overhanging crack. Look for two bolts on the face.


Two quickdraws, #0.75 - #3, extra #0.75 and #1 for anchor.

This pitch is a hoot. When you get there and see how short it is you are going to laugh, but it is totally worth doing and really fun. The jams through the roof are thin, tough, and on very sharp and crystalline rock. Use a quick tape wrap on this if you want to climb anything else for a week. Save a #.75 and a #1 for the anchor. The anchor will also take nuts.

The bottom, where it is bolted, is not very good. There is lots of moss/lichen. I bet the first ascensionists just wanted to directly reach the crack. I think coming in from the route on the left would be best, to have the most fun anyway.
