Description [Suggest Change]

Start below the aid route, climb up to a right-angling hand crack, mantel to a ledge (9), and climb the obvious crack off the ledge (10-) to good hand jams and the top of the Flying Fish Buttress. Build an anchor to the right, and rap off bolts at the top of aid line.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the Flying Fish Buttress east along third band from Space Balls, this ascends the obvious crack that faces east. The top of the crack is noticeable if you look west from base of "How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?"

Protection [Suggest Change]

A standard rack, a #4 is nice, and a #6 gets in the way.

I suggest some of that good old Mountain Dew or other fire in the guts for this one. I recall a few hand-size, then a couple-three finger-size, and then a couple of hands and larger. Do not wear a helmet.
