Locate the tall face where The Sound of One Shoe Tapping and W. A. C. converge; this route is on the next rock to the right.

Pepasan starts (and stays) left of the short crack towards the bottom of the rock. Gain the horizontal (easy climbing), then make a scary, committing, wide step onto a small ledge on the bottom of the face. Up past three bolts; somewhat runout between second and third.


3 bolts. Committing, dangerous move to get onto face proper below first bolt without a cam.

The protection on Pepason is very good if a cam is placed in the horizontal just below the committing step to the start of the face. Above, the bolts are excellent, providing great protection for the thinner moves. This is a fun short face climb.

You can stick a cam in before pulling the moves to the first bolt. Not an 'R' route.

No bolts on top, good cracks take #1-#2 and #4 cams for an anchor. You can downclimb the 5.2 chute to the left or walk over to the W.A.C. anchors to rap down.
