This is a great hidden pitch above the third pitches of Granite jungle and Chieu Hoi. Climb the thin right facing corner past a fixed nut, then get ready for the business. follow a thin crack up a sloping ledge (funky), then pull a little roof with really thin fingers and bust to the top. Lots of fun and well protected, link it up with Granite Jungle or Chieu Hoi.


Up the ramp from the top of Granite Jungle


gear up to 2'' small nuts and cams very helpful


Excellent climb.

Steve Grossman and I were told about this by Scott Baxter and thought we were bagging the first ascent in spring of '76. Even named it, Upon Bathing at Baxter's. Alas, we'd been scooped by a couple of months (weeks?) by those Colorado boys.

There didn't use to be a fixed nut on it :-)

I don't think this climb seems much traffic.
It's a bit hidden but well worth your effort to seek it out.

I think a day of cool obscurity would be to climb Deep Yogurt and then see if you couldn't get to this as a finish. Might be too far apart. Nov 13, 2008
Spectacular pitch. Good pro, great movement. Use this to make almost any route on the right side of the flying buttress 1 pitch longer. Recommended. Oct 21, 2009
Kyle, off the flying buttress ?
Maybe if you went down Coke Bottle, then up Deep Yogurt you'd be able to access it, but the pitch is really up above Chue Hoi. Don't see how you'd access that off of the FB. What am I missing? Oct 22, 2009
Yes, DLA is probably the most direct and best way to get there.

I think now that what Kyle was trying to say was you can access it from any climb on the cliff's right side. As I recall, you can probably get to this by walking down from above. It's on one of the small upper headwalls?

It's no where near the Flying Buttress, in terms of linked pitches. Nov 11, 2009
Paul, I meant anything to the right of the flying buttress, although it seemed like I said on the right side of the buttress. We did Dreamweaver all the way through then walked up to Sly's Idea. I simply meant it is a short walk over to add a pitch when you top out on the right side somewhere. Nov 13, 2009
