Description 

Shares a start with Blue Chock at a prominent left facing corner. Climb the corner until you can step right across the blocky face. Head up into the base of a shallow dihedral. Clip a bolt and work those stems until you can wrap your hands around a large jug. Continue to the large ledge atop Washboard. Downclimb some 4th class terrain or head up and right towards a small tree for a slung boulder rap station


Location 

Begins at the left facing corner a few yards left of Washboard.

The direct start adds some spice and takes away the rope drag. Pull up off of the triangular block to the right of the regular start and wander up the thin, slabby face keeping an eye out for better edges and gear. A bigger Tri-cam in a not-so-obvious placement takes the sting out of the R rating. Slabby face leads directly to the crux dihedral. Direct bit is probably 5.6 with the hardest moves coming right off the ground. Small nuts (and that bigger Tri-cam) are helpful.
