This is the obvious splitter on the right side of "Pigs Buttress"--the next formation right of Celebrity Flake.

Sweet overhanging jams at the top. Classic.


Start on the left side of Pigs Buttress in some obvious dihedrals then work right towards the pretty finger crack.


Standard Sunset, heavy on the thin stuff.

Don't do this as the guide suggests in two pitches. It can be done in one long pitch. Start left in the big flake of Baby Cats, continue up to the shallow left facing dihedral to a ledge. Move right to the bigger left facing dihedral. Continue moving up and right until you are at the base of the crack.
