Follow 25' Handcrack to ledge. Move Right to Layback flake ancd continue to top. Either move left on slabby face at top or trend right to easier ground.

Makes a good climb out.

Very nice varied climb with a thin, thought provoking move in the middle. Fun, easy finish.

FA: Tom Howard and Rick Thompson, October 1985

Great climb with PG protection. Height is closer to 80 ft. Break left at top to reach anchors above The Diddler (5.10a). From those anchors you can TR The Diddler or set a directional and TR Idiotsyncracies (5.11b). Both are good climbs.
