This is another of Verne Clevenger's classic Tuolumne Meadows face climbs. Like it's neighbor to the right, Sweet Nothings, it climbs on friction and small holds and will test your ability to keep your cool.

The hardest moves are right at the start where small holds and slick rock are needed to gain a faint right trending ramp.


The route begins off the top of a good-sized flake about 80-100 feet right of the dihedral of Great White Book. Rappel 160' from the anchors on top of the pitch.


Six bolts to a two bolt anchor shared with Sweet Nothings. The bolts are located in the first half of the climb. Though the difficulty eases after that a fall from near the anchors could result in serious consequences.
