Description 

The far right line on Clamshell Cave. Climb a crack behind a tree, heading up and right. At the top, break left up an easy diagonal ramp until it is possible to climb easy ground over the headwall to the ledge with the anchors. Alternatively, a direct bolted finish over the bulge exists. This thin two bolt variation feels like challenging 5.10c/d slab.

Protection 

Gear to 2". The Kramar guide book shows only one anchor above Noisy Oyster, Shrimp Salad, and Keep Clam, but each route has a bolted anchor. An easy walk-off exists to the east.
