Description 

This short climb is so-so at best, mostly due to its length. Protection is poor and the climbing awkward, yet the climb is not horrible, so perhaps it deserves a star, if for no other reason that it doesn't quite deserve a bomb.

Climb up the corner to the notch (and back down- to tick it off twice?) or continue just over the top and scramble up the ridge Southward to the South summit, passing the bolted anchors to Plain Or Peanut on West face along the way.

Descend via down-climbing this route or down the SE edge of the East Slab from the South summit.

Location 

This climb is the obvious, huge, Southwest-facing corner between the peerless slabs at the Southwest end of the rock, and it climbs up to a low notch between the two main blocks.

Protection 

Maybe a piece or two somewhere.
