Follow the slab to the chimney/crack. Follow this through the small roof, more chimney to the anchor. Watch for some loose rock, otherwise a fun long climb.


It is in between Betty and Barney's Crack. Rappel the route from two bolt anchor. It is easier to rappel down Betty rather than down The Squeeze due to the potential for your rope getting stuck.


Standard rack up to a #4 Camalot.

This thing climbs much better than it looks. A couple suspect blocks, but good fun. The anchor could use a new bolt.
