Description

Either start low in the shallow groove with a high foot or traverse in from uphill. Either way you are aiming for the nice rib that trends up and right. Get over the first bulge and cruise up the slab using flakes, pinches, and knobs until you get to a stance below another bulge. The bolts to here are glue ins. This bulge is the crux. If in doubt use a locking carabiner on the bolt in front of your face and have a draw ready for the bolt at the top of the bulge which is just out of reach. Hunt around for solid holds (they're there), move your feet up beneath the bulge to clip the higher bolt and move up and over. Traverse slightly left and join the route Southern Comfort Straight Up. Clip two expansion bolts over the bulge. After that aim for an alcove slightly to the right with a camouflaged anchor and rap ring. This is also the anchor for East Face Cracks. You can easily toprope either route with a 60m rope.

Location

From the southern aspect of Big Rock hike climbers right and skirt the base. Turn uphill and the start is up a little bit after Southern Comfort. If you see a gear route your too far
