The corner right of "This Bone's For You" starts out as a chimney, then pinches down to an offwidth / lieback / fist crack for the top half. At the top of the corner, reach left for the anchors. This is one of those "obvious" trad lines that was probably first climbed more than twenty years ago. It is a little more convenient now with the fixed anchors on the adjacent route.


Medium to large gear to a two bolt anchor with rings (shared with "This Bone's For You").

Mostly 5.6 with a touch of 5.8 at the top. If you don't get Hanta virus in the chimney, the pigeons will get you higher up. Still worth a go if you're in the area with a gear rack. Left anchor bolt was loose as of 1/11/14.
