Steve on Z Crack with Patrick belaying


Face climb past the bolt and make a 'walrus move' on to the ledge. From there, continue up and left in the thin hand crack dihedral to the anchor. Good rock.


Just left of the main Washboard Area. Start beneath a bulge and a left facing/left arching crack.


Bolt, gear to 2", 2 bolt anchor. Rap or lower.
