Description

This route is located on the NW slabs of Greyrock. It starts approximately 75' left of Skycrack (5.7). It's two pitches, the first (~125') is easy slab (face/crack) and then continues up the right-facing corner to a small ledge with a couple shrubs (5.6), while the second (~90') continues up the fun right-facing corner (5.7+). The crux is at the obvious roof, but you have to traverse out to the right and up the continuing corner. Pull a small roof to top out on "Cow Pie Ledge". Rap from the conifer (need two 60 m ropes). It still might need some lichen cleaning on the crux (reason why I think its never been climbed). Must groan at the crux and passionately yell... "Oh, Stiffler's Mom!" Have fun!

Protection

Takes gear well, medium nuts and hexes, small to medium cams. Gotta clean out a little lichen on the crux.
