Lieback the clean corner past a bolt and then tackle the tricky roof (crux) on lichen covered holds. Once past the crux the climbing eases and interesting steep slab moves lead to anchors on a ledge. A lower start is possible via a crack below the ledge (5.9) but most seem to ignore this extra 10' of climbing.


Located on the right side of the north face and just around and left from Crappie Corner. The climb starts from a narrow ledge below a clean right-facing corner capped by a small roof.


5 bolts, chain anchors (shared w/ Crappie Corner)
