Dihedral just to the left of Barney Rubble. Start on Barney Rubble and traverse left on a sloaping ledge into tight fingers dihedral. A funky crack leads to a short splitter fingers crux and onto easy hands to the anchors.

Descent Options:

Lower from chains.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

A bit dicey moving into the dihedral. You have to make an awkward jam over a hollow flake to get into the dihedral. A short finger crack leads to bomber hand jams.

McNamara claims the FA in 03, but I doubt that's the case judging by the pin scars up the thing. Lots of hard climbers playing around on those cliffs for decades...
