Description 

This is a fun beginner's slab climb.
The name is unofficial and comes from a vug before the first bolt that looks like a belly button and takes an excellent .5 camalot.

Location 

This slab/pillar (I call it Belly Button Slab) is shown on page 121 of Supertopo's South Lake Tahoe Climbing guide as 5.4X with no protection. It is between It's Better with Bacon and Ham & Cheese.

Protection 

2 bolts and one piton plus small gear. Rappel anchors at the top. A 70m rope comes up about 5 feet short on the lower (if you do a take) but it is possible to untie and downclimb the last few feet of low angle slab.

Protection is a little sparse. If you don't want to trust the piton then there is a huge run-out section. Otherwise there is a little run-out before the anchors on easy terrain.

This route is callled "This ain't kosher".

Usually when a person finds an established route and they don't know the name, you asked around, or post it as unknown until it is known.

Hi Petch,
I know you are local and meant no disrespect.
That is why I said the name is unofficial and listed the FA as unknown.
I can edit the description if you like.
I was just trying to help by adding some details after climbing these routes.
