Tart And Tiny 5.7 *
This is a 3 bolt climb on the rock the is just east of Open Winfrey. The rock is reached by hiking through the tunnel, and as you exit the tunnel, it's on your right. It has this bolted face on it's right side, a crack which doesn't reach the ground, but bi-sects the formation (Chubs), and an excellent ( un-named) TR on it's left side. There are 2 bolts on the top .


Chubs. 5.7*
Climb up to the 2nd bolt of Tart and Tiny, and traverse left into the obvious crack system. Rap from the Tart and Tiny anchors.



Un-named 5.10+**

This climb goes up the left side of the face on small holds. I believe it has it's own anchor on top. May 19, 2010
