My lead back up Drizzlepuss. Fun lead!  This is the exit to the summit block. After P4 (depending on where you belay from), there's a 5.easy chimney scramble. John Gaynes pictured here, finishing it up...unroped.  P3. Of the 3 parallel cracks, you'll naturally want to use the 2 on the left as shown. The climbers left crack is hands/thin hands. The middle crack is wider and has good feet/calf jams (for the average 160lb, 5'9" adult male climber).   Great view of Satan's Corner...and Jason Rasmussen on 'Black and White John and Mary' (.10c). Couldn't help but post this. Taken from atop P1 on 'Sweet Jane Variation'.   2nd angle of the original start.
