DescriptionStart as for Farewell Ronald McDonald about 30-40 feet right of the chimney /corner of Jolly Green Giant. After the second bolt continue up the finger crack a little and place a good nut with a long sling, step down, then angle left on good face holds to get to the base of a left facing corner with a bolt just below it. A short draw here will keep your rope from rubbing over the sharp arete. Continue up the corner crack with good gear, saving one or two smallest cams for the final bulge below an alcove with a bolted anchor.
LocationAbout 35' to the right of the sharp arete of Bigfoot Was Here. Look for a couple bolts leading up to a thin vertical crack running through a bulge, with a nice left facing corner to the left starting half way up, with another bolt just below it. The shared start with Farewell RMcD is often wet. It is worth pulling through to the first bolt if needed, as the rest of the route dries quickly.
Protection3 bolts, rack to 3", some runners. Save a couple thinnest cams for the top. I think I used the old style .1 Camalot (red?) for my last piece. A stick clip or spot is recommended if the start is damp.
The bolts above the first belay is a partially bolted and cleaned (some loose rock to trundle) project link pitch to gain access to rock above.
