20 feet right of Making Bacon, look for overhang with crack above it. This can be climbed 2 ways to overhang, right or left of bolts. The left side is 5.11a, the right side is 5.10. Climb the 1st crux, and follow the short crack. Climb a steep slab for the 2nd crux to finish on easy slab.


Draws and 2 gear placements 1/2" to 1 1/2" for 5 foot crack. It is 5.8/9 R without gear.

[Hide Comment] First bolt is gone, anchor bolts look a little rusty but still solid. Aug 31, 2015

[Hide Comment] This will be a mixed lead route or top rope, the bolt was removed to prevent people from leading. The route was not finished, due to my battery running out of juice. We did not finish bolting, then a broken ankle, will finish when I recover. Sep 2, 2015

[Hide Comment] The route looks finished now! It's nice to plug a supplemental cam in the lower crack, but this should now be listed as a sport climb. G rated as a mixed climb. Apr 29, 2018
