This is a pile of choss and not worth the effort unless you're really bored. Make sure your belayer is out of the way in case you pull anything off.

Climb through roof to the right of North Overhangs, and continue up a steep slab. As you enter the roof, your left hand goes on a positive edge, your right hand goes up to an undercling consisting of a 2 finger slot with a thumb catch on top. Then your left goes on the sidepull directly above it. Your right hand then goes into a high layback edge, your left goes over the top to a jug. Have fun with the rockover immediately following. Access the anchors via the crack to the left, or climb one of the three sport climbs to the right (The Pixie, Konichiwa, Rooftop Rodeo).


This is right of Vapor Trail and North Overhangs.


TR. Bring a helmet and football pads. This is a pile of choss named so after the FA pulled a block onto his face while cleaning. There are likely more blocks to follow.
