Fun trad climb to the right of Trundlemaster. Pull steep crack then climb improbable, overhanging shelves to handcrack. One of the best natural lines at Vallecito.


Immediately right of Trundlemaster is a nice crack.


Small trad rack. Shares anchors with Trundlemaster.

Super fun climbing, but it probably should have a "R". The gear is good starting the traverse left and the climbing is positive, but don't blow it getting to the hand crack. It has a new bolted anchor. The climb has fun moves on great holds!
