Listed as an unnamed 5.8 top rope in Chris Summit's "Wine Country Rocks."

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

Jim Thornburg's "Bay Area Rock" calls it Baby Atlas and attributes the first ascent to Ken Stanton, who I assume gave it the name Baby Atlas.
