Summer where the big boys play

Facing Tunnel Road is a spectacular roof with a fist crack passing to its edge and up the face. The first ascent was done by Bob Scarpelli (circa early 1990's). What the Big Boys Eat 12c has Scarpelli size fists at the crux. At the time Scarpelli did this route the ranch had other managers and working for the redpoint was not halted by the ranch concerns.
