Just left of the center of the wall is a body sized alcove about 30 feet up the rock.

P1 (5.10): "Purple Haze" climbs straight up to the left side of the alcove. Step right into the alcove for a rest but then continue up and out of the alcove on excellent stone staying just right of a grey water streak. Continue to the anchors at the top of the grey water streak.

P2 (5.10): Move up over easy stone to the grassy ledge and pull onto a steep face with abundant chert knobs. Continue up as the knobs get smaller and fewer and do thin moves to gain the ledge near the top of the fin. Move right to the anchors of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".


Right of "Slow Ride". See the beta picture.


P1: 9 bolts, sport anchors.

P2: 7 bolts, shares top anchor with the 2nd pitch of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".

60 meter rope to descend, 2 rappels.
