Meat Machine is located to the right from the top of the approach trail to the 2nd Meat Wall. Follow the wall around and locate a steep blunt arete leading to a steep thin crack. The face has two pins in a horizontal crack. This is E. Coli. Located 20 feet right of this climb is a thin hands flake leading to a right leaning overhang. The anchor can be seen at 50 ft. Pull over a bulge into the left facing corner and thin hands crack and cruise up great jams with some feet on the right to an awkward pull around the steep right trending crack. Short but fun this climb is not a classic, but it's worth the time.
Protects well with several 1 and 2 Camalots with a couple smaller pieces.

Great climb! Tough to figure the top out on lead; you kinda need to choose between focusing on the gear or the climb. #2 and 2.5 Friends work great, plus a single 1" piece.
