Climb past the small overhang that is just left of a short, right-facing corner. Move up 20-25 feet or so to a sentry box. Go straight over the overhang at the top of this, then straight up to an indistinct groove with some small, right-facing flakes. Climb up the groove (crux) then head up and right to a good ledge and a threaded rappel station that is shared with Ursula and Groovy.


Start 10 feet right of Ursula, in the next right-facing corner. The trail to the base is about a five minute walk past the High E buttress.


Standard 'Gunks rack, include some very small cams


What route, if any, are the pins and slings under the roof above and to the left on? If they are on a route where do you go from there? I have traversed over 4 feet to the break in the roof and stepped up. Didn't look terribly promising and I backed off. Oct 22, 2009
Sentry boxes are body sized recesses in the rock - very common in some areas. For example, dutkins.com/catalog/photos/… Oct 23, 2009

See the two October 2008 photos under Ursula. We climbed straight up to those pins at about 5.9. I don't know anything more than that. Oct 24, 2009
Ivan --- That is the anchor I am wondering about. You can see a bit of a red sling and biner hanging out of the shadow of the roof directly above Rich's head in the photo. From it I moved right to the obvious break and pulled up to take a look over the overhang. Didn't appear too promising and I backed off. Oct 24, 2009
Dana very sorry to place confusing comments on your description of Nose Drops. I am clear about where Nose Drops goes and your description is clear as well.

My reference to the pins and slings under the overhang in the middle of the wall is an issue unrelated to Nose Drops. To be very clear, or at least try to be; has anyone pulled over the roof there and continued up? If so, how did it go? The fact there is pins and slings makes me suspect somebody was working it at one point or another. Oct 24, 2009
