Jungle Cliffs, Central

Elsie's Nose is the classic line that follows an incipient crack just right of the Evans Bolt Ladder. Start off a pointy stone, with difficulty, layback seam with poor feet, and white, quartz knob, to a moist, shallow, pocket, with the addition of a layback edge crux the right foot onto the quartz knob. Then maintain interest at a lower standard to the top. Sit start is 5.12b/c ***

Also known as Schmoe's Nose, etc et al.


Left of the X on Barnacle face and right of Stearlings Crack is a steep, for Carderock, prow.


Top rope. Deciduous trees provide the anchor. Maybe padding for the anchor rope. Free soloed on routine by the late Peter Absolon. Even free soloed by Brr Matt Lavender. (I found it sketchy-er than The Dream and the Sloth)
