Directions:  Starts at the same 3-trunked oak tree as for One Fork in Eden.
Description: A very nice continuation of Across The Universe. Takes you right to the top of the cliff.
    Pitch 1: Climb a beautiful 45 degree right leaning crack for 25. At the second bolt make an unlikely traverse right for 10 and then up through a weakness in the overlap to the belay. 90, 5.10

    Pitch 2: Face climb past bolts, traverse right to the cracks, then up to a roomy belay. 90, 5.10

    Pitch 3: Climb straight up the crack. Here Salad Bowls diagonals left, but instead forge straight up the face, following a shallow weakness and cracks to the top.

Gear: standard rack, double ropes are useful
Descent: rappel the route or walk off from the top of the cliff
History:  September 14,1989 - Paul Cormier, John Eagleson
