Description 

Climb NW arete staying on W face straight up. After turning the bulge, cut left (contrived) to clip 1 more bolt and build an anchor. Or just go straight up. Surprisingly fun route despite its lack of length.

VARIATION: Grandpa's Cheese Wedgie (5.9). Start right of arete clipping a different starter bolt. Finish as per Provolone.

Location 

On Cheese block rock--east of Rolling Stone.

Protection 

Gear and 3 bolts. Thin gear for anchor--look for a horizontal crack. Walk off or rap another route.
