Description

Kitchen Sink is a perfect name for this route as you'll encounter everything from tips to offwidth by the time you get to the anchor. Start by stemming up two parallel offset cracks with good finger locks and gear in the left crack. Take advantage of a rest ledge to the right if you want and then continue up a fist crack behind a flake. There is also a tips crack that leads straight up from the ledge and merges with the fist crack after about 10' but it looked harder.

A short easy offwidth section leads to a final tight right facing corner. A blue alien size crack and occational openings in the corner provide adequate places for pro but this might be the mental crux for some.

Location

This route is just left of Charlie's Pillar and starts up parallel offset cracks, the left is big enough for fingers and the right is more of a seam.

Protection

Bring two each from Blue Aliens to #4 Camalots with an extra .4 Camalot. There are two bolts at the anchor but the upper bolt could use a 1' length of chain.
