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 5.12c


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


Top rope. Deciduius trees provide the anchor. Maybe padding for the anchor rope. Free soloed on routine by the late Peter Absolon.
