BETA PHOTO: Marzipan ... on E face of Tootsie Pop Tower

Description 

Start on right side of thin crack. Permitted to use the boulder to the right for footholds. Up the right side of the crack to the top, using few handholds to the left of the crack (especially not holds that would be used on the My Sweet Tooth route).

Variation (harder): Do not use the boulder to the right (something like 5.11b).

Warning: Rock is still breakable and loose, so belayer should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

Thin crack near Right end of East face.

Protection 

Could set up anchor for Top-Rope with a static rope or long sling with directional from the two-bolt top anchor for My Sweet Tooth.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
