Description 

A steep boulder problem with great face to corner climbing. Sustained and fun!

Start in a rhododendron alcove below a steep series of horizontals. Scramble up below the large horizontal. Plug a hand sized piece and crank the boulder problem to the first bolt. Continue on the thin face to the next bolt just below the dihedral. Make a tough clip and tech your way up the tricky dihedral to it's top. Punch in a few pieces of gear and pull some long moves through the steep bulge. Plug a small cam and mantle to a nice ledge. Follow the fun moderate face to the same set of anchors as Birthday Pickle.

Location 

This is the last section of rock at the far left side of the Boulder Problem area, just right of Birthday Pickle. They share the same finish and anchors.

Protection 

Blue Metolius to Yellow Camalot sizes, a couple of medium sized nuts could be used. Quickdraws for the 3 bolts and a few slings to extend some of the gear. Two bolt anchor at the top to rappel or lower.
