Description 

A pretty cool and unusual climb that begins by squeezing through a wide slot and then chimneys up between a large pillar and the main wall. There is a crack for protection and hand holds. When the pillar ends climb about 30 more feet (a bit dirty but seemed pretty solid) to the top of the wall and set a gear belay. Definitely worth doing this route if you are looking for an interesting and adventurous 5.7 to warm up on.

Note: this route is incorrectly labeled as Dirty Thrasher in the picture in the guidebook.

Location 

Look for the wide slot that goes behind a pillar. Just left of where the main trail meets the wall.

Protection 

Single rack to 2", with a #3 for the anchor at the top (not necessary but nice to have) and a #4 for the start (getting to the wide slot). The crack behind the pillar takes 0.4-0.75, so if I doubled up on anything it would be pieces in this range.
