Small holds to jugs about 10' up to left facing flake. Lie back to ledge and 1' wide dihedral about 10' up to pine tree. Move left and up to next ledge. 5.8 goes to left up steep blocky dihedral or 5.10+ straight up the middle. Also known as Whaleback Crack in Holzman's book and S.O.B. The start is a little harder since a flake broke off in 2011.


30' right of Pizza route. Start just right of where 1' square flake is missing and 10' left of a bolt.


2 hangars on top, 2' and 3' from edge
