DescriptionA decent climb that mixes up nice edging with some fairly intimidating friction moves. Begin at the right side of a flake leaning against the wall directly beneath the hanging "ribeye flake" in the middle of the NW Slab.
P1 - Climb the right-facing corner and face to a belay at a juniper bush directly beneath the hanging Ribeye Flake. Good gear and easy climbing. 5.6, 80 feet.
P2 - The meat. Bite into a leftward traverse on significant edges, heading up through broken, slabby terrain toward a line of three bolts. Friction up the bolt line (5.8, intimidating) to reach lower-angle, more well-featured rock and a left-trending finger crack that deposits you on Cow Pie Ledge. 5.8, 120 feet.
