Description 

This one doesn't see much traffic. Follow a short finger crack to a blank face passing two bolts. Short, puzzling, and very fun. One guide called this 11b. See what you think.


Location 

A short distance climber's left from Report to Sickbay the trail drops down between the cliff (on your right) and a large boulder (to your left). The Parker Route is on this boulder to your left. Follow the trail down through the notch, and look left.


Protection 

Finger sized cams/nuts, two bolts. No anchor. Some people lower from last bolt (there's a fixed quicklink). One can negotiate another way down, but this is not recommended.

The crack is lots of fun while it lasts, but the face felt heinously difficult to get established on. It would be much more reasonable if the face weren't overgrown with lichen.
