Starts with a good layback crack or optional stemming to a small ledge just underneath a narrow chimney. Squeeze into a narrow chimney with a heavily featured face beneath the anchors. Plenty of holds are inside the chimney, but the juggy ones are a bit reachy. Pull a small (& dirty) ledge to the face-bolted anchors.


Left side of the first (small) alcove you see approaching from Three Bears. There is another obvious route on the right side of this alcove. This is appropriately named "Goofy Foot" since it's the left one. Look for the bolts with rap rings above the chimney - you can see them easily from the trail.


Top Rope. There are additional bolts on top of the cliff for additional protection (when clipping the face-bolted anchors). Take the Pool Hall Gulley to set a top rope.
