Two parallel finger cracks run half way up the right-hand side of the wall. Both cracks end abruptly at a wide, horizontal crack/ledge.

Like so many Santa Barbara cracks, these would be excellent...if only they extended for another 40 feet.


About ten feet right of California Flake. Starts from a dirt ledge several feet up from the base.

The cracks take small gear (up to 1-inch). There is no permanent anchor to lower off of. As such, this route is almost always top-roped using 2-bolts and a manzanita on the far side of the ledge at the top of the wall.
