Description

Pitch 1: Climb up to the small overhang and move around left (awkward); or climb the slab on left up to this point (less protected). Continue up into a small left facing corner. When the corner becomes right-facing move right to a crack (crux) and cruise up into an awesome open book with a small ledge.

Pitch 2: Climb the cracks in the right wall. Step right then back left and up to move overhangs. Then traverse far right and follow dirty corner to the top. This pitch is only 5.5 but is very exciting. There is a lot of traversing, so try to avoid placing too much gear and use long slings.

Location

Starts about 20 feet right of Fat City and 40 feet right of Gelsa, at a shallow groove capped by an overhang about 15 feet up.

There are no anchors; you will need to walk off to the right, scrambling easily down to the base just before the road.

Protection

SR and long slings.
