|Anteater - West
Good climbing similar to Swiss Cheese on cool pockets and edges. Some cool mantle-type moves and beautiful rock make for a worthwhile top rope climb. slightly harder than Swiss Cheese to its left. Climbing is more enjoyable than Swiss Cheese.
Directly between swiss cheese and scream cheese. Must climb scream cheese or other climb up to that set of anchors then setup toprope from there.
Gear required is same as gear required for scream cheese. Rack of quickdraws and webbing for setting up top rope.

This route has apparently been "upgraded" with bolts as of September '08. It has 5 or so bolts and a new set of anchors. Look for the shiney new plated Fixe hangers.

Thought this was way better climbing than Swiss Cheese. Should have pulled the bolts on that junk show and left this one instead.

Not a squeeze job at all. You never come close to either of the other routes... I've definitely seen worse. This is easily the best route on this side of the formation. Steep consistent climbing on big huecos and cool plates. IMO this would be a 4-star classic if the bolts were still there.
