Boulder up a left-slanting rail to a high first bolt and then work up and right on crimpy edges (crux) to snag a jug at the 3rd bolt. From here you have two choices: 1) the original finish - which works up featured rock, clips the last bolt up and left of the arete and then mantles onto the south face where a short bit of face climbing leads to anchors. 2) a newer direct finish - from the third bolt continue straight up, clipping a bolt on the right side of the arete and finish up with the crux of The Longest Yard.

A fun, bouldery route which is even better with the newer direct finish, but unfortunately the fun is over all too soon.


Located on the far-left side of the east face, this is actually on the southeast corner of the formation and starts behind a small tree.


4 bolts, chain anchors
