Description 

This one packs a bit of a pump. Move up a crack to the small roof. Load up on gear, pull up over the roof (crux) and find some small crucial gear for a short runout. Continue up to a shallow chimney. Follow this feature to the main rap anchors in the middle of the wall above Quaker State.


Location 

On the left side of the amphitheater. The bulges directly left of the obvious crack on Quaker State. This side of the amphitheater gets late day sun.


Protection 

Single Rack to 3", TCU's, and small wires.

For a better finish, don't grovel to the top in the chimney. Instead, step left after the alcove and pick your way up the pumpy face to the top, finding your gear in the horizontals.

Above this finish find a short, 0.5-1.0 inch horizontal crack about 6-7 feet back from the edge. This is a great place to build your anchor. Please don't tie up the rappel anchor by using it for your belay/slingshot anchor.
