|Ice Cream Parlor
When you park and look at the Ice Cream Parlor this is the snazzy looking crack on the right side of the crag. Take the path that leads to the right and onto a large ledge. This crack is a really beefy flake in a very open book. The start is spicy then you break into 50ft of perfect yellow tcus, a bulge where the crack widens and flares then to the bolt anchor. Total desert style, stem on the smears, crank the fingers, fire the cams and get moving.Anthony Everhart
Set of tcus with 6ish .75s and a #1 camalot, double bolt anchor. No nuts.

Gear List: (1) .3, (6-7) .4, and one 4 or 5 Camalot. Orange TCU's work very well also.
Totally kickass pitch and much better than Blue Gramma, its IC rival!

Skyeler's gear list is accurate. .75 is useless on this pitch. I protected the start with a #2 camalot in an undercling. Then a #4 (old size) below the finger crack. 2x .3, 4x .4, 2-3 .5's for the biz.

.75's definitely don't fit. I took 5 of them and realized i was screwed about half way up. I ended up running it out and .11- isn't easy climbing for me. Definitely bring alot of .4 and .5's for this one. It's an excellent climb.
