Half between Lizard and the Sentinel, close to the water is a cool traverse on steep jugs, but some of the rock sounds pretty hollow, beware. Anchors on top (bring hangers...) work on left, main, and right side of this little crag, easy approach from top main trail, easy walk down to bottom. This is the slab on the left wall, around the corner of main face. Can't use boulder behind you. Start on left edge of main face on cool horizontal jug, keep feet off jutting horns, and pull up on a small edge to a semi-jug (V3 by itself?) then stay on slabby face to left of arete. Very Thin, feet suck.

Descent Options:

Walk down right (right side if facing the crag from below)

4 out of 5 stars This is hard

good luck I haven't been able to do it. Not sure why computer still says V1, the start is harder than that. If you like sick smeary slabbing you'll like this. It's good I just can't figure it out. Not sure on the grade really.
