This is a great route with a well-protected crux and a slightly heady finish on solid rock. Some great climbing is packed into a short distance.
Start near large boulder and climb 15' to a small bulge. Place micro cams or small stoppers to protect the crux bulge, then follow knobby face 15' to a small, sloping ledge and a solid fixed pin. From pin, climb to summit on solid crystals with no pro. The finish is easy and a good way to get your head straight for harder routes. Rap off webbing around summit.
Sardine is the small spire squished between Robknob's Spire and Northeast Slice. This route is located on the low-angled SE face near a large boulder.
