Start on the placed flat stone just right under the first bolt. Smear up to the left towards the cresent dike. Hand foot match on the right leaning crimper on top the dike. Smear straight up towards the "peanut". Once you are standing on the "peanut" you can traverse right towards the second bolt, across a nice, scoopy plank and make your way up the left-leaning crack. Follow the crack to the top.


This is right of Zipper and Velcro and left of Toe Jams.


Two bolts. The crack above takes between a #1 to a #2 BD Camalot.

During any climbing season, you will find this line covered with desperate paw prints around the first bolt. This is where the name Laughing Gull comes from.

My favorite route at the main cliff, and just barely there, the fall between the first and second bolt is super clean but a tad spooky, dont be scared by it JUST DO IT! The left leaning crack at the top is excellent in itself, I just wish it went on for another 100 feet.
