Start as for Pot Belly, then veer left where the two cracks diverge. Follow the angling fingertips crack to a ledge. Usually toproped after climbing Pot Belly.

Walk off right.

This gets a sandbag 5.9 rating in the Supertopo guidebook.


Same as for Pot Belly.


Small cams if leading.

Sandbag 5.9? Really? 5.9 seemed accurate to me as a 5.8 leader breaking into 5.9. Pro was almost all small nuts (micro's and < BD #8) after breaking off from Pot Belly. Maybe one #4 C4 (?) before mantling up to the the walk off.
