One of many chossy piles in the area, this formation sports an alcove on the north face that has two surprisingly good faces of rock with very different characteristics. Facing north is a tall (for the area) face of crenulated, steep, lichen covered granite with hundreds of small hidden holds (hidden by lichen) and split by a seam that takes nuts well and runs most of the length of the face. One route has been established on this 40-45 foot face, and two or three more quality face climbs can probably be eked out of it.
Follow a faint trail from Count Chossula down and west for maybe 100 yards, under "the Schnoz," an obvious feature shaped like a giant nose, complete with a pair of nostrils. Continuing along and down will bring you below the climbs.

North face of Green Eggs and Ham. The route begins at the base of the seam that splits the center of the face. Set up your belay at the top from a natural arch, a large patina plate, and cam under the dike at the top of the route. Descend by downclimbing (5.5 or so) to (or rappelling from the patina plate to) the notch above Pancakes and Cornflakes and walking down the gravelly slope. Alternately, continue to the top of the formation and downclimb a water groove on the east face of the rock/...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
