Description 

Just left of Shute-Mills there is a chimney separating a pillar from the main wall. Climb the blocky face of the pillar just left of the chimney (and right of New Tradition), then step right to the main wall and finish on New Tradition.

Protection 

Cams up to 2" on the pillar and two bolts above the pillar.

Rated 5.9 in Tresa Black's "Rock Climbing the San Francisco Bay Area" but I think it's easier.

Scary. Don't yard on those blocks. A fall with gear behind them may result in a catastrophic gravity event.
