Description

This shares the same start as Dick See Chicks at the right end of the corridor. Chimney up and move left onto the top of the big boulder that leans up against the formation. From here take the thin crack up and left and finish past a couple bolts. There are some nice finger locks in the crack, but mostly you can just climb the face.

The guidebook gives this route an 'R' rating but it's not really runout. However some of the gear can be tricky to place well and the bolts at the top are spaced a little further apart than the sport climbs in Alabama Hills. If you don't want to lead it, it's easy to toprope it after leading What A Face; they share the same anchors.

Protection

Small and medium nuts, and some TCU's. Micro cams help if you really want to sew it up but they're not necessary.
