A beautiful climb on the west side of the Breakfast Cracks wall. Start on a low-angle ramp and gain the finger crack with lots of pin scars. Follow the right-leaning crack until a bulge needs to be negotiated. Once above the bulge, there are some exceptional underclings, sidepulls and jugs that are very out of character for basalt. Make a leap of faith and continue going straight up the face making use of these ergonomic holds until reaching the anchor.
West (climber's right) side of Breakfast Cracks. If starting at the top, look for an old Metolius rap hanger and button-head bolt. Back this up with gear in the adjacent cracks.
Full set of nuts & a set of small cams (C3ís, ect.).
