Description

Great Route. Slightly Overhanging big finger crack at the start. (not as intimidating as that usually sounds) Move up and left at the top of this crack to exit out around the corner.
Just above is a horizontal crack. Traverse left in it for 10 feet or so and then pull the big-hands to fist to offwidth exit. Excellent!

Location

Up the Green A Gully. Just up from Looney Tunes/Mother of Pearl. This route is located on the opposite side of the gully from Loony Tunes.

Descent: From the offwidth section... move left on slabby rock to a 2 bolt rap anchor in some brush. A single rope will get you to the ground.

Protection

I believe that I took...
3-4 0.5 Camalots for the start
varied gear for the traverse (stoppers and assortment of small cams. 0.4 - 1 camalot)
a #3 and a #4 camalot come in handy for the exit.

There is one bolt on the route at the stemming move from the finger crack to the horizontal crack.
