Description 

This pitch is a bit of a battle. It provides excellent meat and potatos crack climbing with a few drawbacks. I give it a PG-13 because it's one of those pitches on which it's hard to get out of the groundfall zone. As the crack angles out right, the ground underneath it rises with ledges. It's not dangerous, but you have to place more gear than you'd like to, given the overhanging feel of the climbing, to keep it safe. Where the flake/overlap turns horizontal, take the vertical crack up through the overlap to its end than angle over to Strawberry Short Cake's finish.


Location 

This pitch starts on Strawberry Short Cake, then breaks right out the right-angling flake/overlap.

Rap from OJ's first pitch anchor or continue up OJ.


Protection 

Standard rack with a few bigger pieces.

Bolt anchors at the top.
