Description Suggest change

Bolted crack/flake thingy that flares open at the top enough to accept extra-thin climbers and midgets. Burly boys can just lieback left a bit with generous knobs/edges on either side.

The Huey lists it as "9+/10-," but the lieback felt secure at 9 and my wafer-thin after dinner mint partner said jamming and then squeezing through OW style felt pretty soft, too. Call it a 9 no matter whacha do.

Location Suggest change

The very first crack after you scramble down (or around) the Daily Planet boulder. Can't miss it. If you DO come around DP, you'll see that Captain Tombstoner actually does ascend the left side of a huge, tombstone-like flake.

Protection Suggest change

Four bolts + 2-bolt chain anchor.
