Description 

Around the buttress to the East of 2tardforU and Happy Crack is a bowling alley kind of valley which is basically an oversized chimney, surrounded by walls 14' apart up a wide finger or thin handcrack that eases to the right and leads to some large face holds to an obvious move left, pull the bulge then straight up to finish. Rap the anchor or pull a few dirty moves to belay off a tree and head to the car.

Protection 

Nuts and misc cams to 3"
