Description 

This west facing route climbs a series of shallow/rounded grainy horizontal seams before hitting the very tough blank finish. Not done very often, although it's readily accessed easily from the road.


Location 

While on the road just before the last left turn to the summit, look to ones right to see this boulder. It has kind of a "brain-like" look to it.


Protection 

TR, bolts
