Crack-a-Pogo is located on the right end of the Pillow Wall just beyond the fairly obvious Marilyn Chambers Crack.

Start off fingerlocks climbing in two crack systems. Once able, move to the right hand crack and enjoy the thin hand and hand jams to the canyon rim.

I have also climbed the left crack which is enjoyable. Good hand jams climb a sweet crack then careful moves past a little loose rock land you on top.

I believe this is a Larry Coats FA.
That name in my mind is associated with Larry.

Also over on the far east side of the Pillow wall is a pillar I climbed with Dave Dawson that looked somewhat like an Easter Island statue. Seems like it was close to the Silver Pond. Looked a bit dirty and vegetated but actually very good climbing and pretty clean around 5.8. I think we named it Kon Tiki? Although that might have also been what we called the thing to the right of Panda Roza. Just can't remember.
