Description 

Fun alternative P1 to either the Overhang Bypass or North Overhang finish. Start at the next crack system to adjacent right of the normal Overhang Bypass P1 start, ie, the first one left of The Flake. You can clearly see the flat tunnel that you'll thread upward into. Enjoy the squeeze through. Partway through, you'll see the exit gap up and to climber's left. Exiting, you'll connect to that one airy sidepull move about halfway up Overhang Bypass' normal P1. Then continue up to the same belay alcove. Finish to the top via Overhang Bypass, or via North Overhang.

Location 

Rap via communal rap chains facing the parking lot. Reminder: a 60m or 70m rope is long enough only to get down to the big walkoff ledge, not to the ground.

Protection 

Pro to 2.5", gear anchor.
