Description

The second climb from the right on Cornerstone -- Ascend the arete that forms the left side of the Mustard Seed dihederal, trying to stay off The Good Book. An 11a move or two over a tiny roof leads to balancy 5.10 above. Thoroughly bolted.

Protection

6 bolts, 2 ring-anchors (shared with The Good Book). Set TR by carefully scrambling around the left side of Cornerstone and across to the anchors.

Squeezed and contrived 1 star route. Kind of silly when I somehow feel that I need to try and stay off of the holds on the Good Book and Mustard Seed. I could have clipped bolts on those as well during the climbing... classic example of BoCan gone wrong. Jul 11, 2011

Best route at the cliff, though that is a very measured compliment... May 15, 2008

As I recall, we found a chipped hold in the middle of the face above the 3rd bolt. Either chipped or a shallow scar from an aborted bolt placement. Apr 19, 2003

Not a bad route, although quite easy to join into the good book, if you stick to the arete you will be o.k. with some feet on the face to the left of the arete, the move after the little roof seems to be the crux. A short route but great for a short days climbing, this whole crag actually. I give it 2 stars. May want to rap from this route, rope drag may be a factor.
