Directions:  Look for an obvious flaring crack that starts up on a small ledge on the far right side of the Main Slab.
Description: This is a nice crack climb that probably looks a bit easier than it is, but don't underestimate it. The main crack is parallel-sided & you may find yourself leapfrogging your gear if you don't have doubles or triples! Currrently the bolts are old 1/4" and should be replaced. The climb was named for the quality of the protection on the FA.
    Pitch 1: Climb up past 2 bolts and get into the crack. Continue to a small tree ledge.

Gear: standard rack + several #2 Camelots if you have them
Descent: rappel from a tree with 2 ropes
History:  September 1,1975 - Joe Cote, Bruce Kumph
