Crux is near the top, well protected though. The anchor is way off to the side which makes it awkward to TR. Route goes straight through the bulge at the top. Really cool large crystals stick out of the rock.


Follow the obvious crack to the left, then follow the bolts up.


#2 & #1 down low, and 3 bolts

This route is called Pie Slice. The TR up the center is The Bagman Wears a Dress and the TR on the right side is Crumb Cake.

Thank you Tristan B. Do you know if there is anything on the boulder to the west w/ the single bolt on its summit? Seems like an odd place to put a bolt...

I don't know what boulder you're talking about. Check this site out.

There's a V7 just to the West, but I think that one is a traverse and pretty low and wouldn't need a bolt. But if you look hard enough you'll see random old bolts all over the place at any spot.

There are 4 bolts on "Pie Slice," not 3. Also, there is an awesome knob or chicken head on top that can be tied off to provide an excellent directional for "Pie Slice," as the bolted anchor is situated some distance the the right of the route.

Back in the 80's we used to climb the Pie Slice via the arete to the left of the bolted route. Follow the crack to the arete, sling a knob and gun it for the top. I remember the moves up the arete not being too hard just a little runout. Probably no harder than 5.9
