Description 

Stinging nettles, rodent droppings, lichen, and friable rock: well, this ain't like Cairo or any of the City's other, er, cities. Start a few feet right of Easy Corner and piece together features for about 20 feet until able to work right into the base of a left-facing, slightly left-leaning dihedral system. Climb the dihedral to a huge dangerous looking block under a roof, but avoid the block by stepping left and climbing an off-width-looking crack until able to step back right to the crack just over the block. Follow the crack system to the top. Probably deserves a bomb, and likely was climbed by pre-Europeans or a Lowe, but I'll go ahead and piss on it just for fun. Grrr.

Location 

Right of Easy Corner.

Protection 

Trad rack (micros useful). Belay from gear. Figure it out to get down.
