Spaghetti Sauce Sunset
Past the bush, left of the roof, over the nose . ....
This is one of the better routes on AFPA (if not the best) and takes a nice line up the far right side of the west face.
Climb a crack in dark rock passing along the left side of a small roof and finish with some nifty moves past a bolt. Lots of quality climbing for such a short route with some good moves throughout.
While this is certainly not a classic, it is a worthy obscurity worth checking out. Seldom will you see climbers on this route or in it's vicinity - they will all be found gearing up for the nearby Boulder Crack, which redefines the word CLASSIC!
Gear to 3", one bolt (3/8")

For all the crumbly loose stuff around, the pro was surprisingly good. I thought the moves were fun too . . . maybe would be better if the route were cleaned by more traffic? Crux was the bolt-protected crumbly friction section at the top.
