Tea Grinder is lots of fun and varied.

It opens with a fun but relaxed hand crack and after approximately 40-50 feet enters a short but strenuous/fun chimney protectable with #0.5 and 0.75 Camalots. Following the chimney the climb makes its way left into another handcrack and around a small bush and ends on a ledge for a gear belay. The final pitch follows the short (15-20 feet) offwidth section. I found the crux in the final offwidth moves.


It is on the Northwest side of the formation just right of Monkey Wrench.


Set of nuts and #0.5 - #3 Camalot. Doubles were nice in the #1-3 range and the potential for #4 in the offwidth.
