Listed as a Variation to "Shine Your Helmet" in Webster's 2nd edition.

Begin in the 3rd corner right of The Edge (about 50 ft right of that climb) Corner has 2 trees at it's base and converts to an arching-left-flake-corner about 30 ft up.

P1 - Squeeze past the trees and start the corner ["hidden" bolt up and right, down very low]. A 2nd bolt [3/8" SS] protects the 5.6 / "5.6+" crux moves and then the flake provides further protection.

See Chinos COMMENT- The route now has its own double bolt anchor on the sloping ledge [thanks "guys"!]....or....(as we did before the anchor) continue up on "Polish the Monkey" variation [ 5.9 - 5.10 ]


About 50 ft right of the well-brushed "The Edge", and just right of the well-bolted left-facing inside corner.


2 draws and medium [0.5 to 1.0 Camalot-sized gear ]


This route is a variation start to the two routes to the left. Now equipped with a bolt anchor it can be done as an independent route. Start to the right of the corner at a double birch tree growing at the base. Clip a low bolt and climb into the groove to a second bolt. Move left out the scoop to another bolt that replaced the old pin. Follow the flakes up and left with good gear to the bolt anchor on the sloping ledge. Sep 30, 2017
