Description 

This is a sustained pitch. Thin finger locks to a small roof. Nice position. The rock has a slightly different texture to it if I remember correctly. The only bad thing about this pitch is there is a loose block. I have put a black circle showing the location on the topo. Once that block is gone it could possibly be four stars.

Location 

Climb Let's Barbecue to get to this pitch or one can access it from the top via Tatoosh. The red line in the topo shows were to traverse to the top of the pitch from Tatoosh. 70m rope will work. Naturally one will want to rap straight down via Tai and Randy Memorial route after climbing Bob and Doris, but that is not recommended due to a very large mess of loose rock. So please rappel via Let's Barbecue. One day the Tai and Randy Memorial route will be brought back to life

Protection 

I only tope roped this pitch but I would say a single rack with thin wires. Cams from 000 .75 single set would be more then enough. there may be some small cams that could be doubled but I cant confirm those sizes right now. I added two stainless bolts and hangers with chain on top and at the start. The chain is not stainless. There were two pins on the start for a belay originally, I think I removed those. Brian Ebert helped me with this work.

I know now a days we call Tatoosh the awesome pitch that forks left before the OW section. I think the OW section is called Free at Last now.
