Description

Starts in a short, left-facing dihedral two routes left of Chunky Monkey. Three bolts and nice pockets in the dihedral lead to the smooth slab above. Tiptoe through the final two bolts - the fun doesn't end until the anchors are clipped.

Even a cursory look at the flakes above the anchors will tell you why this route ends after 40 feet.

The route is rated 5.10c in the attached photo, but 5.10d in Rick Thompson's guide. Choose your favorite rating and enjoy.

5 bolts to anchors.

After doing the route a second time, I'd say the rating is a little soft. Call it 5.10c or so. Nov 30, 2003
Crux is probably the last move to a good edge just under the anchors. The climbing up to there is very fun but pretty straightforward. Nov 7, 2011
