Hard to miss the "tongue."

Description 

Fat Tongue is an obscure face climb that sits by itself. It sat perhaps untouched for years because of bad bolt placement. In 2013, Darek Krol graciously rebolted it making it very worthwhile. Originally rated 12a, holds may have broken and presently it sits around 12c. It's burly right off the ground all the way to the 3rd bolt. Expect good holds facing the wrong direction and feet not where you would want them.

Location 

Currently it is the only route at the Zone of Silence.

Eds. Now there are at least 5 other routes here.

Protection 

11 bolts.
