Description

From the belay ledge at the top of pitch one of The Big Easy (5.7) continue up and left through the notch. Instead of angling over left to the the Sesame Street anchors, continue straight up the right hand line of bolts through a rock scar where the giant flat rock down in the trail below Arugala came from, to a tricky overlap where you must get up on to the final slab using some small and hard to locate holds and interesting footwork. Motor up to an anchor below the white buttress, passing lots of bolts for such an easy finish. (An extra one got placed at a chalk mark by mistake)

I once tried rope soloing this route thinking it was a 5.7 second pitch to The Big Easy. I ended up down climbing to the real 5.7 finish and rapping off. Fun times.

Location

A second pitch variation to The Big Easy.

Protection

8 to 10 bolts (ill try to count next time).
