Description 

Visible from below, this is the right hand of the two cracks that lie to the right of Straight Shooter. Approach as per Straight Shooter and then work right along the base of the cliff until you reach a wide chimney with a chockstone in it. Work your way past the chockstone to reach the route.

Pitch 1: Ascend the wide crack to a large ledge.

Descent: Work left and down along the ledge toward Straight Shooter to a pair of old bolts with chains. A single rope rappel brings you back to the base.


Protection 

Bring large gear for the route (3" to 5") and some smaller gear for anchor (.5" to 1").

This route is incorrectly marked in Jerry's book- this route lies to the RIGHT of the Lazy Fireman- as does Crispy Critters. The chains mentioned above are the rap anchors for the Lazy Fireman.
