Climber pulling on the blunt arete to gain some hi...

Description 

Move through good holds until you can get your right hand on the faint, slopey arete. Work your way through this cool feature to the easy top out. Short but sweet.

Location 

Walking down the trail to Shadow of a Man, this relatively small boulder will be on your right. Worms Way will be to your left, Shadow of a Man just ahead. KFC climbs the trailside face.

Protection 

1 pad, spotter if you want it

The story goes that the first ascensionist gave this some obscure scientific name like "Quercus palustris". No one could remember that so they just ended up calling it KFC. Americans for ya... In any case, great problem, short and sweet, a worthwhile V2 to add to the circuit.
