Start on the arête right of the acute dihedral as you would for Meatcake (a little bouldery) and then stay with the crack as it goes around the corner and splits the face. You can clip the first bolt of Meatcake (use a long sling) or not and plug in small to medium size gear up the crack until it dies out. Move up and left and clip the bolt on Meatcake. Finish on that route. Best to use long runners on the bolts to reduce ropedrag. Tough to place gear at the top of the crack. Best to run it out a little. The climbing is moderate through that section.


Same start as Meatcake.


4 bolts and small to medium sized cams. Anchors are equipped with lowering biners.
