An OW-sized crack that demands very little actual OW technique, this climb boasts a surprising amount of hand jams and much wide stuff can be circumnavigated with stemming and face holds. Cheating, I know.

Large blocks are split on either side by essentially two cracks, so choose your path according to your strengths, but you should probably wind up by finishing on the crack on the right side because the anchors are located there.


In the chimney just right of the distinctive Penguin Cafe. Obvious wide cracks.


Hand sized to 5" camalot. Widely spaced rap anchors.
