Rock Area Index / Sandwich Notch / Four Part Harmony (5.8+)
Directions:  Scramble up and right about 50 feet from the Brilliant Corners area, reaching a sunny ledge with two bolts. Rap down to lead the first pitch -- it's short, but worth doing.
Description: "This route is better and harder than it looks!"
Larry Hamilton (2004)
    Pitch 1: The bottom section of the four part route - the 30 feet from the ground up to the two-bolt anchor is best protected with small SLCDs in horizontal cracks.

    Pitch 2: Belaying from the 2-bolt anchor, the second pitch starts on a steep wall with a bolt, climber's right. Several cruxes and a total of five bolts later you reach the top. A finger-size nut or cam helps to protect the last exit move. The top three sections are approximately 70.

Gear: Standard rack and the bottom section of the four part route - the 30 feet from the ground up to the two-bolt anchor is best protected with small SLCDs in horizontal cracks.
Descent: Belay and rappel from a tree at the top of the cliff.
