Our project on the left, Option Only on the right,...

Begin up on a ledge to the right and uphill from the main Penguin Land feature. The two bolts at the base of our project, "Quail for a While" will be on your left. Climb easy ground with a wide crack on your left. You'll soon find your "option only" to choose the wide crack on your left or a thinner, more vertical crack on your right. Climb to ledge and then ascend the south face of the main buttress through a couple ledges to a 2-bolt anchor on top of the formation. Enjoy the view, belay your partner up, rap off with a single 60 m rope.


The southernmost region of RR and uphill and east from the main crag just a bit.


Single or double rack with a wide piece or two depending on your level of comfort at this grade.
