Rock Area Index / Humphrey's Ledge / Under Toe (5.8+)
Directions:  The climb starts up the beginning corner of Soul Survivor, 20 feet left of the start to Shifty Eyes; an obvious flake on the right face marks the start to the route.
Description: Nice mixed climbing. The name refers to the fact that Bob Ahern stepped on a wire brush that was being used to clean the route and jammed one of the bristles up under his toenail. OUCH!
    Pitch 1: Climb the corner of the first pitch of Soul Survivor to the top of the initial buttress. Protect high and left and step right around the arete to the flake (small gear) and up the face on good holds past two bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings. 45

Gear: Standard rack and draws. (Cams from #2- #3 are helpful at the start).
Descent: Rappel the route
History:  August 11, 2010 - Chris Graham and Bob Ahearn
