Description Suggest change

Pasta Salad is an independent line with some interesting movement but so-so gear in a place or two. Leave this one to experienced trad leaders.

To the left of Burger Madness by about 5-6 feet, there is a third system of flakes & seams. Start from the ground about 6' left of the start of Burger Madness. Step up onto an orange band of rock, and place a small cam (tricky to get it in well, but you can) in a little opening at the bottom of the seam, just where it pierces the bulge. Get a few holds now, up and left in a shallow pocket-like dish and to the right, and haul up over the bulge onto the slab. This is probably the crux of the route. A spotter might be a good idea here.

Once on the slab, a few nuts or small cams can be placed. Head up the seam a bit higher, and find holds on the face and even on the arete to the left at times, placing gear when you can. Hit another bulge, and reach up and high left behind a solid, incut flake and then up onto the top of that. A so-so-set of Camalot placement options between #0.75 and #3 can be placed downwards behind this flake for protection. It would be advised to place at least 2x of them for security and sling them. Head up to a few surprisingly good holds, and pull over the second bulge onto the slab above. 20' of runout but easy slab climbing will take you to the belay ledge as for Burger Madness. This can be protected if you want to cheat right onto the Burger Madness crack and top out on that.

The belay is off of #1-2 Camalots in a crack at the back of the ledge or on a cordalette around a large boulder.

Location Suggest change

This route is an entirely independent line of flakes and seams about 6' left of Burger Madness.

Protection Suggest change

A single set of nuts and cams from the tiniest cams you have to a #3 Camalot.
