Start in a chimney formed by the right side of a huge block leaning against the cliff; the same as Dog-Stick-Ridge link-up. Climb the chimney to a ledge, then traverse out right through an open book/ finger crack. At the end of the crack, traverse left under the roof, then fire straight up the face.


About 15 feet right of Baskerville Terrace, at a large block leaning against the wall that forms a right-facing chimney.


Initially the pro is good, but in the crux you are clipping old, bad pitons that are half-out. Just before the crux and just after the crux you get bomber gear, but after that gear there is not much until you get to the communal anchor.

If you are uneasy clipping the old pin on the bouldery crux, it is easy to set up a TR by the old rap station
