This is the obvious chimmney left of Whiskey A Go-Go. Climb up on good face holds (Gear?) to reach the cleft. There are good holds inside and out on the left towards the top of this section. After that's over, work up two cracks to the anchors of Whiskey A Go-Go. This is a really cool pitch for the grade and the rock quality is good throughout.
Left of Whiskey, Y-wall.
Wires, Single set of cams. Long draws or short runners for chimmney.
Mike Gasch seconding the pitch.

The chimney feels like it's going to spit you out each time you move up. Just a bit flaring. But a great climb! And the dihedral after the chimney is picture perfect!

Known as "Pigeon Crack" in the Ryan Hansen guide book.

Very possible to TR this one with a piece placed in the dihedral after the chimmney to help with rope positioning.
