Description [Suggest Change]
This route is a variation of shipyard rock. Shipyard Rock proper that is featured in the guidebooks starts in the gulley between sharks fin and humpbacks in love. This variation is on the same side as all tuckered out/tuck and roll. It doesn't go all the way to the same summit as does shipyard or waves but it would be possible to head up there once on the "false" summit. The route is fun but a little run out on suspect holds near the top hence the pg-13 rating.
Location [Suggest Change]
Locate all tuckered out. Now head up the 5th class gully as if going to nutra sweet. head right in a chimney and take this until you are at the start of tuck and roll. (it is possible to set up a top rope to all tuckered out here). now head up and just right of tuck and roll following a well defined water groove, similar to the first 40 ft of solitaire. you can tie off a knob and head up and left into the crack to place some gear with long runners and then come back down a bit to traverse right over into the water groove. take this to the summit. belay using the bomber metolious anchors of tuck and roll. a 70 meter will get you all the way back down off of those anchors.

The first part of the climb can be soloed and go's at 5.0, the second part is 5.6 and takes .75-3 and a long sling to tie off a nice knob.
