Description:

Follow same seam as Sinus Headache and angle right past 3 face bolts. Cross over the 'ear' and follow the 'hairline' to the top. The rusty bolt next to the crack is a rivet, don't use it as protection!

5 out of 5 stars Awsome Route Awsome area.

Best little lead on the central coast! Ticked this and olas negras in the same day. I have big plns for this area this fall when I get back from alaska. Probably the best crag on the central coast but i probably should keep that hush hush....
