BETA PHOTO: Fat Bastard is located high up in the pink dihedra...

Description 

A beautiful, clean, lightning-bolt crack in the pink face up and left from the belay. Bolted face climbing to the right of a bulge (crux) leads to a traverse left into the corner with the clean wide crack. Climb the wide crack either straight in or you can stem out left to a secondary crack. The anchors are on the right wall on a small ledge. Three stars out of five.

Location 

Located by climbing Sulu, but instead of going right to the Mr. Check-off anchor, continue up to the Fat Bastard belay.

Protection 

Three bolts (crux at second) lead to the wide crack in the corner. I usually carry 1 ea. 2"-5" cams plus quickdraws.

The crack looks much wider than the gear suggested.
