Description 

Start in a shallow, right facing crack/corner a few feet up the hill to the right of 'Crack of Noon.' Continue up and trending right past an undercling on big holds to a bolt. Pass a large hole, clip another bolt, and mantle on a prominent shelf. Move left for a foot or two (don't go to far left, that would be 'What Horn') then surmount the lip and continue up past three bolts to 'the horn' and mussy hook anchors.

A fun route and just a tad harder than 'What Horn.'

Location 

See Crack of Noon Buttress topo picture.

Protection 

5 bolts, it is possible to protect the lower crack/corner with a #1 Camalot and the undercling pocket with med. offset cams.
