From the Narrow Arrow summit area, go partway up Tatoosh, then exit right onto a ledge. Go right on the ledge to an obvious corner (10b) left of the headwall. Another bolt protects the moves to the top, the highest point on the Lower Wall.

For other details, see the beta images for "Higher Learning".


Gear to 3.5", one bolt.

What's with the Tuna theme at Index? Is there some history here?
Missing the boat.

In the Cummins book the crack is called the A2 variation of Tatoosh. How did a A2 crack become 10b?

About the tuna, do you mean this one and Dr Sniff?

I don't know if the similarity is a coincidence or not. I had nothing to do with either name. Bobcats, on the other hand, is definitely an Index theme...

I was wondering about the bobcats as well. It was fun seeing the history behind the Strange Boar and associated friends.

someone told me there was a local nicknamed tuna and he had a glass eye. sounds reasonable enough.

I felt like the crux of the route was between the first two bolts with groundfall potential. Moving the first bolt leftward would probably help with that. The upper corner is great and worth it but I'd recommend starting via the finger crack (may be a little dirty).
