Climb 25 feet up the left-facing corner its top (crux 1). Exit right (crux 2) and then move up the face to a rap anchor.


Find Yum Yum Yab Yum; the start of Silver Bullet is 35 left of that, at a rather indistinct left-facing corner with a roof 20-25 feet up.


Standard 'Gunks rack and a few very small cams and wires. The protection getting to the roof is placed behind a shallow, loose flake.

Williams' new guide calls this 'G' rated with ball nuts. All these and little c3s go behind a quite distinctly hollow flake. If the flake blows on a fall, this route is an 'R' as contact with the ground below is guaranteed.
