Description 

One hundred feet right of the Sun Cave routes is a prominent silhouette that looks, in profile, like the snout of a large fish. This West-facing crag has one route running up its vertical middle section and another cutting right along its ten foot overhanging roof - Nose Job.

Scramble up 4th class cobbles to catch a clip from the top of a small pillar. Muscle out right via jugs to the roof's end. Pulling over the lip and getting established on the fin is cruxy. If you latch the big hole on the South side, the game is almost over. Balancy moves gain an anchor that might best be moved to the top of the cliff band.

This old line was established several years before the visitor center off Highway 83 was built.

Protection 

A few draws and a rope.
