Description Suggest change

What can I say? At 5.3 most will think this trivial and in fact it is well suited for a solo, date climb or neophyte first lead. But as 5.3 routes go, it really is a pretty nice climb.

Locate the prominent cleft that that bisects the Tuna and Chips Wall. Tuna & Chips goes up the left side of the wall and Tuna Cookies the right. Chips and Salsa starts behind a large block at the bottom of the cleft at a low angle crack. Waterstreak goes up the obvious polished feature to the right. Face climb up the nicely featured rock along the crack to a belay where it opens into a wide chimney. There are two bolts and a drilled angle piton for an anchor, and then two more bolts and chains for Waterstreak, a little to the right.  For P2, wander up easier - and certainly less exposed - climbing in the chimney to the top. This is mostly scrambling and not much actual chimney technique is necessary. Descend to the climbers right and down a gully.
