Mike Amato passing the shallow roof at second bolt...


Start at a black wall about 230 feet west of east-side descent gully just right of the beige, right-facing edge of Whisper To A Scream. Climb past six bolts to the anchor. It is a lot of fun and not too dicey.


6 bolts (guidebook says 5) + anchor.

I thought this one-star was better than the three-start 27 Tons (though Tons was nice, too).

That's because it is much better than 27 Tons.
