Description

Eat Left is a reasonable route that needs a little more traffic or cleaning before it could be nominated for a second star. Meanwhile, it is worth the bother for those who are already there and want to add on a pitch, or for a wanderlust or completist, motivated leader.

Of the 3 cracks that wander up the lower section of the East face about 40-50' to the stout belay tree (fixed rap anchor), this is the leftmost, easiest, and widest. You can get few good hand-jams along the way. It needs little more cleaning or traffic to reach its full potential, a measured compliment.

Get established on the wall (spotter?) at 5.9, and sink in a good cam. Continue climbing up some awkward and sustained moves to what may be the crux about 2/3 of the way up. This will only be notable for those with poor jamming skills and perhaps blend right in with the rest of the route.

Work your way up to the top of this crack and up onto the ledge, then go back and right to reach the belay tree.

Location

This route is the flaring and discontinuous handcrack just left of 'Eat Right'. This is about 50' up the poor trail on the East Side of Lower Cob Rock, around to the climbers' left of Othello. It goes up to the ledge and then right to the belay tree as for 'Eat Right.'

Protection

A standard light rack from 0.5-2.5" and a few slings.
