Listed as an unnamed 5.8 top rope in Chris Summit's "Wine Country Rocks," but I think it's a bit harder than 5.8.

I originally posted the name "Near" but Chris Summit et al.'s "Bay Area Top Ropes" calls it "The Chickens are Breastless."

Jim Thornburg's "Bay Area Rock" calls it 18NY, rates it 5.10a, and attributes the first ascent to Ken Stanton, who I assume gave it the name 18NY.
