Climb up the difficult face moves to reach a finger crack (crux, unprotected). If you blow the crux moves, you'll land on the large ledge. This may deserve an R rating as there's potential to fall off the back of the ledge if you land wrong. Gear can be placed as soon as you reach the finger crack, from here the climb eases up significantly. This route can be top roped by building a gear anchor on the gunsight above the crack.


This route starts from a large ledge about 15 ft to the left of the beginning of the 2nd pitch of Tomato. It can also be reached by climbing Banana or one of the other lower routes below the gunsight to reach this ledge and traverse in from the left.


small nuts or small cams.
