BETA PHOTO: Penthouse Pet is the right-slanting crack shown on...


Sustained crux comes immediately after starting from the low-angle slab into the thin tips crack. Make some delicate smeary steps up the blunt arete just to the right of the crack to make a longish reach to a one of the few tenable locks. The strenuousness eases as you reach the ledge and join Excitable Boy.
The beta photo doesn't do it justice. Then again, it is still harder than it looks in person.


The thin right slanting crack ~10' left of Excitable Boy.


Thin cams for the crux. Medium for the anchors.
