Look for a chimney/box dihedral capped with a 12 foot roof about 60 feet left (to the west) of Too Much Crack. Climb up thin cracks to the roof which has a hand crack that flares into a bombay chimney. This route has really neat moves out the roof which is less difficult than it appears. It seems like the climbing up to the roof was neat, likewise. I climbed the route three times in a two year period as it seemed pretty fun back in the day.


There were rappel bolts placed to get off the climb and are hopefully still there. If the bolts aren't still there scramble a series of ledges to the west to descend. (Peter this will give you something to do next time you are bored).


A set of stoppers, some small cams, several hand sizes pieces for the roof and of course some over the shoulder runners. (Sorry if the rack is off a bit but it has been about 18 years since I last climbed this route).
