Up a featured flake to a horizontal crack with a fixed cam. Two choices here: straight ahead is a bolt for the original line (.12a), or follow the horizontal crack left to a left facing corner (.8).

If you do the .8 variation, follow the corner up through so-so terrain until another right-slanting crack leads you to a ledge with two bolts. Anchor is shared with the Frightful Variation, Scarface, and some other climbs. Not a bad choice to run up if someone is on Dave's since you can quickly rap down.

I listed the route as .8 since only did that and not the .12a face.


Start about 40ft right of Dave's and immediately left of Scarface.


Cams to 3 inches for the .8 variation, cams to 2 inches plus two bolts for the .12a face. Two bolt anchor with rap rings.
