Description 

on the far right side of the cookie after the 5.13 crack route there is a chimney (5.8). Start up this and continue up through a squeeze chimney (5.9) and belay at the bolts. 2nd pitch goes up a 5.4 no pro ramp to a unlikely corner. This climbing is full value stemming, jamming, and chimney moves. Two more pitches bring you to the top.


Location 

far right of cookie.


Protection 

.3-3 doubles. slings, nuts, and a 3.5 or 4

Kinda old-school, unlike your average buffed-out Cookie splitter. This would probably be more fun if it got climbed more and cleaned up a bit. Tell all your friends how great it is and follow them up it.
