Description 

Excellent 5.11 face climbing with a pumpy layback bulge at the top. This climb has a little bit of everything.

Begin with a slabby ramp for 3 bolts that deposits you at the base of the infamous pod. Negotiate the awkward first crux that is more body position than pulling, and head up the steep face to another crux in a shallow corner with some tricky underclinging. Rest up below the final corner and pump/power crux that even has some crack climbing! Finish with 3 bolts of slab to anchors on a small ledge.


Location 

Starts just up and right of Lunch Rock. Locate the trail heading up, through some brush towards the green streak of "Tiki Man" and the steeper face to the right. Follow this up for about 10-15 feet to a terrace that is the start of several routes including "The Pod" "Ring Finger" and "Dedo Grande".


Protection 

14 draws and a 60 meter rope to lower off. Watch the end this one's a rope stretcher!
