The north end of the Grocery Store Walls are a fun spot to park it and work the 7 moderate (although notoriously sandbagged) routes on these two usually well shaded north faces (routes here include from climbers left to right: Rainbow Bread .9+, Pecan Pie .8, Pie In The Sky .10d, Franktown Brewery .5, Strawberry Jam .5, Gorilla Milk Direct .9, Gorilla Milk .7+) This route shares a start with Strawberry Jam. Move left at the ledge. Find the crack on the upper face and follow to the top.

3 out of 5 stars Nice top half!

Nice fun 5.6 climbing at the top of face - to work into the climb at 5.5 level, recommend traversing in from right. I think the direct start under the overhang is more than 5.5. Not hard, just takes a bit more trust in holds.
