If you would like some offwidth, this is a little more challenging than the offwidth sections on Ragger Bagger and Gobble Up. Scramble up to a slab. Step over to a crack with a chockstone. You will now see two cracks. The one on the left is The Gobbler's Cobbler. Step down into the hole and start work on the wide crack. The crux will come soon (the rock is a little flaky here). The upper part felt a lot like Handjacker to me.


Turkey Sandwich starts just right of Left Handed Jew (see photo). Walkoff to the left or walk/scramble to the right.


Big (have not led yet, will update), boulders on top for anchors.

My partner lead this route on 4/13/13. Leapfrogging two #6 cams worked well for the squeeze chimney.
