Description

Another classic route in this area, and a bit more accessible to us gumbies than Greatest Show on Earth or Mango Tango. Start on a 5.7-ish finger crack a bit to the left o Puppy Chow. Some finger-sized cams may help if you don't want to solo 30 feet of 5.7 up to the massive ledge. From here, clip a bolt on the face to your left, and do a crazy crux sequence of heelhooks and a big reach into an undercling. Once over the lip, it is easier (10b-ish?) but really fun climbing for three more bolts to the anchors.

Location

Left of Puppy Chow, in a big corner.

Protection

5 bolts, anchors. For the start, either bring some small cams, or clip the first bolt of the 13a traverse "Lavender Days" with a long sling.
