Climb up an easier ramp to a stance. Stem out the slot, then up the nice corner (thin gear) to a ledge up high in white, not-as-good rock. Traverse left 20' or so, with surprisingly decent gear, to the anchors of Chalk A Lot, Shake.


This is the right-most (up-stream) route in The Soda Fountain area, 2 climbs to the right of Cherry Twist and just right of Chalk A Lot, Shake.


Lots of small cams up to maybe .5 Camalot, 1-2 #.75 & #1 Camalots, 1 set of nuts, and some runners. One could use up to a #3 Camalot, but it isn't really necessary.

That is funny David. I wonder who I got the name Soda Straw from?
