Description 

The upper part of the route is very fun, the lower part is a garden. Climb the green-ish slab through some rhodo to a ledge. Do not follow the friable crack, but launch onto the face to the left that is very protectable. Climb straight up to the large tree through some cool overlapping flake features and rappel.

Variation finish: Great Gonzos Traverse. Just before the finish traverse right along a wide horizontal crack and top out on a slab.


Location 

Spot a distinct splitter finger crack a few hundred yards right of Wocket in My Pocket. Walk a few more yards right of the splitter before a recess. Find a friable obtuse dihedral above a vegetated ledge. Climb the face on some good edges and friction with no pro to a ledge.


Protection 

Small and medium cams. Rappel from a tree.
