A wandering line near the left-hand edge of Campus Wall. Jam your way up the initial crack - getting around the bulge is the crux. Join "The Pedestal" in time for the move around the nose to the left. Belay in the crow's nest, or continue left and up through the upper part of "Congratulations". Watch out for rope drag if you try to do this in one pitch!


Where the CCC trail comes up below the East Rampart and turns right, start in the crack a few feet right of the nose.


Finger to hand-sized. Include a few long slings, the route traverses considerably.

A better version of "The Pedestal," and better protected, too. Nov 22, 2011
