Description:

A finger and hand crack just around the corner from Pop Bottle on the over hanging arete Left of East Corner. The route starts in the splitter crack about 5ft left of East Corner, where most everyone builds and anchor etc...Follow a Hands and finger crack for about 60ft of slightly overhanging climbing until pulling around the arete to the easier climbing of Pop Bottle. This route although a bit crispy is actually pretty good and well protected.

Descent Options:

Climb to the top and walk off or rappel from the anchors atop East Corner.

3 out of 5 stars Good stuff

This thing was pretty crispy but what isn't at the leap that doesn't see regular traffic? We climbed this thing just for the hell of it and it turned out to be decent climbnig. A but contrived as one could climb up around the arete onto 5.5 climbing of Poop Bottle at almost any time, but if you stay in the crack you'll find decent gear, good rests and quality climbing until the thing kinda peters out and forces you onto the main low angle face.
