Description 

The route starts two routes to the left of Unknown 2. Look for a triangular roof. Climb a crack through the roof, onto a dihedral, then finish with a crack on a wall to the top. There was enough loose rock on this route nobody wanted to second me. I had to knock down a beachball-sized rock (I almost pulled it onto myself) and promise not to disturb the half of ton of gravel on top before anyone would come up. Needless to say, I would avoid this route.

Location 

This is on the leftside of the Twelve Pack Wall. Walk down to the right.

Protection 

Standard rack, I went up a ways to build an anchor away from all the rubble (long slings).

Maybe this has cleaned up in the last few years, because I did not encounter much rubble or loose rock. There is lots of gravel on top though. I don't recommend the route unless you have done everything else in the area. I can see why it is not recommended in the guidebook, but it is not too bad.

This route was not a choss-pile in my most recent visit, there was minimal loose boulders, but agreed the top is definitely a beach of loose pebbles, as well as it was a bit dirty. I thought this route was pretty good. Straightforward protection the whole time except on at the top where you'd want to build an anchor (webbing is pretty helpful), fun and weird moves, and a little adventure, not to mention some awesome surprise bomber holds if you know where to look. There was a good ledge to belay from at the top, just up and to the left of the beach, and there's at least one feature you can get webbing around for an anchor.
