Climb up the slightly overhanging face into a corner. Then move right onto the arete and jug haul to the top. Balancy, short, and fun.


This is located downhill of Center Pocket. There are three bolt lines on a slightly overhanging, brown face that stop at the first ledge. No Se is the leftmost of them. The middle of the three shares anchors with No Se.

I believe this route is supposed to be named Lunch Bucket and was bolted by Luke Childers. It was dubbed "No Se" as I nobody seemed to know the name. Romper Room is to the right, and I bolted that one. Mar 8, 2014

This route is 11b or so if you follow the unnatural bolt line. The true line is to the right, but since you are off the bolt line a fall at the third bolt will give you a good swing and smack into the wall. Not a recommended lead if 5.10 is near your limit. Maybe some holds fell off since it was bolted and rated 10b. Aug 3, 2009
I bolted this line back in 2003-2004 as I bolted and sent most of the lines in the Alcove area.

This is an awkward climb in that the bolts aren't really in line with the climbing. The other (right) side of the little buttress has a route of similar grade (The Romper Room), goes to the same anchors, and is a more fun climb and a more pleasant lead. Lead the Romper Room, lower down and do a quick TR burn on No Se. Jun 18, 2007
