Description 

A fun strenuous route featuring steep climbing and great position out on a buttress. Begin on Barnacle Bill and after the first few bolts go right around the buttress on big holds andup through the bulging section (crux). It is run out towards the top but the difficulty eases off significantly.


Location 

On climber's right of the buttress with the gap you can walk through. Go down and around it and on the far side is a line of bolts (Barnacle Bill) with a variation breaking left after the first few bolts. That is the Plank.

Directions above seem off. This climb shares start with Barnacle Bill (5.11b). Follow Barnacle Bill for a few bolts between good horizontals. Just below small blocky roof go left on jugs passing a bolt and rock up to good holds out on face. Gain stance and then continue up easier ground to top. Use long draws in beginning to avoid rope drag. Climb probably goes at 5.10d.
