Description 

Climb the varied right facing corner to a series of tiered overlaps. A technical crux leads to pumpy climbing finishing at a two bolt anchor.


Location 

Next to Bombbelay at the SC shaped flake. Lower from anchors but WATCH YOUR ENDS! This route takes a full 60 to get up and down.


Protection 

Bolts and gear to #2 camalot. Two yellow TCU sized pieces are helpful near the finish.

I think this is the best route at the North Sides, besides Cornflake crack.

Rumor has it that although named Whitney's Excellent Route, it may have fallen to Bruce Burgess. Interesting.
