Fun, balancy face route on good rock. It is adequately protected, but can be easily toproped (just scramble up the right side of the flake). This area is in the shade most of the day.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

A good warm-up route or something to do if waiting for the nearby Flower to open up.

the rap bolts are good but some of the bolts on the climb are spinners but just don't fall so you don't have to worry about it

Unlike the Suicide slab routes that have lots of dime edges, this is mainly friction bump surfing. Not difficult if you believe your rubber will stick and sufficiently protected, but still not a route I'd want to fall on.

Good route with a short crux

In my '85 red guidebook I wrote in the name "Kitty Litter", 5.9+, for this route, because the feet were sorta crunchy and we did not know its name when we did it...there is an easy down-climb on the right edge of the slab.

Not really a trad route. The bottom bolt is a fair ways up, but you can easily climb the flake to the left, stem over to clip the bolt, and then start from there. The pitch leads to solid bolted belay.
