DescriptionThis is not a bad climb, per se, but being so short, it is hard to reccomend pursuit of this over something else. But once you are at the area - you may as well if you have some spare time.
Access the ledge on the upper Northwest face of the second tier, and spot a small stem-box that goes past a bush to a crack that splits to left and right. Climb up past the bush (5.7, crux), and head left up the crack on that side to the top. There is a second 5.7 move near the top. Clip the chain and bolt with slings and lower off.
LocationThis route is on the right-most and shortest of 3 buttresses of the second tier Approach from the ledge below the second buttress and go up and right (5.6 scramble) to a second, slightly higher ledge. Little Black Box, Stand By, and Drunken Pilot (L->R) all start from this ledge. Little Black Box is the left side of a split crack that starts with a stem, Stand By is the cleaner right side of the split crack, and Drunken Pilot is the handcrack to the right of those about 3 meters.
