Description 

Fun route, just left of Slot Nose. It's a bit easier than the 5.10a rating, probably 5.9. Ascend using a nice, chalk-crusted hand crack. On toprope, it is tempting to go left, but the route stays right; just follow the bolts. The crux comes just below the anchor, where you ascend a "slot" similar to Slot Nose's.


Protection 

Two bolts on route. Shares the same two-bolt anchor with Slot Nose.

there are sport routes around the back steep side of this feature, 10c on the left(big undercling/heelhook to pocket) there is an 11a/b further right with some cool moves, easy to toprope.
