This route starts 30 or so feet to the right of the Meanies, atop a large block.

P1- follow a fun crack thru overlaps. At its end, follow a thin seam up and left, traverse right then up to a right-facing, hanging dihedral to its top. Then thin face to a belay at the far right end of the arch.

P2- Follow hand/fist crack thru roof, followed by a bouldery move thru a bulge, then a chimney to the summit.


Standard trad rack to 4".


30' right of the meanies.Walk off backside.
