This is a late addition to the Church Bowl area. To the right of Aunt Fanny's Pantry, climb the left of the two cracks up and past a tree to a gravel filled ledge with a manzanita on it. From the ledge, a thin crack can be seen off to the right. Plug in a small cam here and begin traversing this crack as it shoots diagonally up and to the right. Foot holds appear and offer rests before reaching the top of Jacob's Ladder. From here an excellent flared, offwidth flake is liebacked to a set of chains. Rap here with one rope to the ground or step into the gully and climb Aunt Fanny's Pantry to the top of the pinnacle.


This climb is located to the right of Aunt Fanny's Pantry and left of Jacob's Ladder, right in the middle of Church Bowl.
To find the start of this hard to see crack, scramble up the first ten feet of Aunt Fanny's Pantry and gain the ledge on the right. Look for the double cracks that mark the start of the climb.


Single set to 3.5" A few long slings will help to keep the rope running smooth. Rap off of chains 100' to the ground and the base of Jacob's Ladder.
