Challenging crack start climbs behind a solid flake close to the ground and safe, first pitch climbs to terrace, easily crossed 3rd class, then pitch two presents two rewarding cracks- wide hands and a squeeze chimney/ lieback. Final station at the boulders up top, careful with the friable rock.


Pie Shop right side. The flake downhill from the last set of bolts, but before Drop Out (the wide crack before Marmot Cave)


Standard rack

We enjoyed this route more than expected and did it as 3 pitches. Each "pitch" has a roomy ledge and nice little challenge for the start. Walked west to the bolts by Crepes Corner to get down.

Climbed only first pitch, then veered way left rapping off chains over Poly Grip. Moves off the deck more strenuous than most 5.8s. It does protect and after 15' eases up a lot.
