This route is a right facing, slightly rightward trending dihedral about twelve feet left of the route "Raspberry Corn Flakes". There is a small pine tree growing from the left wall about 40 feet up. Start out by scrambling up a set of blocks to the base of the dihedral. Stay in the dihedral and eventually the route merges into "Raspberry Corn Flakes" just below the roof. The more centered (to the right) in the dihedral you stay the more difficult this route will be.

It is possible to bail left out of the dihedral at the pine tree. This variation is about 5.10c/d and features an independent more direct bolted finish up a slab and ove a roof. This variation is named "Cooling Relief". Once again about 14 quickdraws constitute the rack. The F.A. of this variation was climbed by Brent Kertzman and Tony Mraz in Oct. 2003.


About 14 quickdraws. I might suggest some longer draws or slings to alleviate potential rope drag.
