On the next large boulder right of Tabasco. Without gaining much height, ascend the left diagonal crack until able to break out right via a second crack below the top.


On the next large boulder right of Tabasco. Very obvious left diagonal crack.


BD cams from #.75 to 3

This route is a real gem and deserves some traffic. I used a single set of hand sized BD cams. I was able to bump cams along, but if this grade is near your limit, you'd likely appreciate doubles from BD #.75 to #3. I found the jams really great and with some cleaning the foot holds would be more obvious. The transition from the left diagonal hand crack to the crack that breaks right to top out is a lot of fun and the top out is safe and clean.
